Kudos to Manfred for actually getting something right.  

Of course, MLB was the last to fall in line.

Haven't heard a word out of the NFL yet.

They don't have anything to deal with until the draft in Las Vegas in late April.

Free agency can pretty much go on, perhaps with less meeting in person between players and prospective teams.

Prep for the draft will be more film based and less about going to team's Pro Days and watching the players work out.

Actually, the XFL is the only league with major (10000+) crowds that is going on right now in the US that hasn't made an announcement.

You do know that bacteria and viruses are transmitted in ways beyond direct physical contact, right?

You do know that keeping a locker room clean addresses that problem? You don’t just keep yourself clean, you keep surfaces clean. I’m not saying that this isn’t a problem, and I’m not saying we don’t need to be vigilant, but I am saying That this is a drastic step, and then should be only taken if absolutely necessary.

Even Major League Soccer suspended for 30 days at this point.

The Dragons and Wildcats will not be able to play home games with any crowds.  I'm thinking a decision will come within the next day. 

Sucks because I really was hoping the XFL would survive.  The response seemed more positive than the AAF though and they were just really unlucky so McMahon may give it another shot next year.

What is college baseball doing? With campuses shutting down and replaced by distance learning are teams still going to play? Will MLB go into draft with fresh data or go by 2019 info?

A few conferences (Ivy, Patriot) have already shut down all spring sports.   I expect others to follow suit but it hasn't happened yet.

Interestingly Virginia Tech made an announcement yesterday where they extended spring break a week and then the entire remainder of the school year will be online instruction only.   And they cancelled a host of upcoming events between now and April 30 -- Ring Dance, Parents Weekend, Black Alumni Reunion Weekend, the 3.2K race in commemoration of the 32 people who were murdered on 4/17/07, etc.   But they didn't cancel any athletic events yet, including the spring football game which usually draws 30,000-40,000 people.   I assume that is just because the academic administration cancelled all those other events and left it to the Athletic Department to deal with the sporting events.   But I would be utterly shocked if the Spring Game is held (at least with fans).

The NHL has paused their season.  That makes it sound like they will be back.  

I'm sure they all plan on being back.  This isn't Captain Trips.

Stay safe. You are front line man. 

The line has gotten me. I just got a positive strep test. At least that's ALL it is and I can stay home until Friday night, and right back out there.
