Canada is open to hosting Major League Baseball games this summer, but the league has not submitted the required plan to health authorities.

A government official said if MLB submitted an acceptable restart plan to the government, an exemption letter similar to the one given to the National Hockey League could be provided.

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday night it will have a 60-game regular season that will start July 23 or 24 in empty ballparks.

A schedule has yet to be announced.
