Major League Baseball has suspended operations amid coronavirus concerns, the league announced Thursday. As of about 3:15 p.m. ET, that game was still being played.

Word of the decision came by way of the Commissioner Robert Manford, who said the action was being taken in the "interests of the safety and well-being of our players, clubs and our millions of loyal fans". Guidance about daily operations and workouts will be relayed to the clubs in the coming days.

According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, the decision will affect the start of the regular season, which was slated to begin March 26 where all 30 teams were expected to play.

"We will continue to monitor all the appropriate medical advice, and we will encourage our players and other members of the National Hockey League community to take all reasonable precautions - including by self-quarantine, where appropriate", Bettman said.
