Hello 👋 Tuesday – how are you?
We hope everyone is doing well, having a great week (thus far), and enjoying this beautiful sunshine that is currently shining through our window this morning.
Let’s get after it today, everyone, but first, let’s enjoy a brand new ‘Daily Noontime!’
Noontime’s Headlines for Tuesday, July 2, 2020
- The abridged 2020 Major League Baseball (MLB) schedule was released yesterday, which means our beloved Boston Red Sox will play some games this summer, beginning Friday, July 24 when they host the Baltimore Orioles.
The Sox will play games against its American League (East) opponents, as well as the National League (East) teams.
Following their first three games against the Orioles, the Sox will welcome the New York Mets to Boston for two games. They will then head to New York to play two more followed by a trip to the Bronx to take on the New York Yankees.
- We will know more about the Ivy League‘s plans for fall sports tomorrow, but in the meantime, there seems to be a rumor (or two) about football being punted – no pun intended! – to next spring. Is that even feasible?
According to TheAthletic.com, the Ancient Eight, which does not compete for spots in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) could impact if and when a college football season occurs due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
- In case you missed it, but you probably already know by now that Harvard University‘s upcoming academic year will be remote. The plan is to welcome first-year students to Cambridge in the fall and seniors in the spring.
Additionally, the school will allow some students to study on campus during the fall and spring semesters.
- Smith College joins a growing number of local universities that are suspending its fall sports seasons for both varsity and club sports but does hope they could provide their student-athletes with some competition during the spring semester.
- The Boston Globe spoke with a few local gyms about their reopenings yesterday – are you planning to workout today? If so, your fitness center will look a lot different than it did a few months ago.
