This book does not contain schedules, as 2020 spring-training schedules are not yet released. In 2018 schedules were released around Labor Day for spring training 2019, but that’s no guarantee they will be released at the same time in 2019 for spring training 2020. Buy the print edition now and we’ll ship it with schedules when they are released. In addition, we’ll update the eBook with schedules when they are released.
