The league’s owners voted Monday to implement a 60-game season that would begin around July 24, ESPN reported.

The owners and the union have also smoothed out health and safety protocols, which were the final hurdles in getting a truncated season approved, the MLBPA said.

Originally, the owners had submitted a 67-page proposal outlining the safety and testing protocols that would be installed this season, CBS Sports reported.

After nearly three months of stalled negotiations, MLB decided to implement a 60-game schedule. That will allow the league to cram in as many games as possible before its self-imposed regular-season finale date of Sept. 27, ESPN reported.

Players will receive the full prorated share of their salaries -- about 37% of their full-season salaries and around $1.5 billion total, according to ESPN. The postseason will remain at 10 teams. Players will not receive forgiveness on the $170 million salary advance they received as part of the March agreement with the owners and receive no money from the postseason, sports network reported.
