PHOENIX (AP) — Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer says he is organizing a “sandlot” baseball game.

He also is trying to raise $1 million for Major League Baseball game-day staff who could be affected by the league's decision to delay the regular season at least two weeks because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Bauer publicized the idea of a pickup game on Friday on social media and several other players said they were interested.

A time and place for the game have not been publicly released. Bauer has set up a fundraising account and asked interested people to help donate toward helping MLB game-day staff.
