MLB has finally agreed on a return to action, but is their plan safe in terms of spreading coronavirus?

Some experts are concerned about baseball's plan to have teams play in their home ballparks and travel, as that could create wider spread and give more opportunity for the virus to continue spreading to various cities and states.

The other big difference between MLB's plan and other major sports leagues is that they will only be testing for coronavirus every other day for players, which could lead to more asymptomatic spread within teams and throughout the league.
