CLEVELAND — Although the season is on hold and the future is uncertain amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cleveland Indians will continue to pay its full-time employees their regular salaries through June 30, according to the team.
Full-time employees across baseball operations and business operations will continue to receive their regular salaries during this time, with the exception of all senior executives, who voluntarily took salary reductions, the team said.
Unfortunately, the team said it had to furlough many of the part-time employees and interns.
It’s unclear when, or if, baseball season will be able to commence but Gov. Mike DeWine said for sports such as baseball, which saw its season halted just before it began due to coronavirus concerns, the pandemic has to be controlled not just in Ohio, but across the country.
