All 30 Major League teams have pledged $30 million in total to help cover the lost wages of ballpark employees who have been affected by the postponement of the season due to the coronavirus crisis.

"Motivated by desire to help some of the most valuable members of the baseball community, each Club has committed $1 million," Rob Manfred said in a statement.

With Opening Day originally scheduled for March 26, teams had filled out a majority of their game-day staff, many of whom are paid by the game.

The spread of the coronavirus first prompted the league to postpone Opening Day until April 9. On Monday, Manfred said games would start in mid-May at the earliest.
