This is the time of year in which MLB fans make that customary first trek of the season to their favorite team's ballpark to catch all the sights and sounds springtime regular season baseball. This year, however, the coronavirus had other plans, as the 2020 campaign is on hold until medical experts are able to approve a safe return to action. Given this difficult reality, legions of fans who purchased tickets for this first month of games obviously won't be able to go; unfortunately, not every team is stepping up and giving folks their money back.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and StubHub — the MLB's official ticket resale distributor — are refusing to grant automatic refunds on tickets for games that could not take place, in keeping with the guidance of Major League Baseball itself.
The LA Angels are likewise not handing out refunds.
California law states that StubHub has to grant ticket refunds for any fan that demands one. When fans contacted the Dodgers' ticket office for refunds, however, the team cited the league's position that the games have been postponed rather than cancelled, therefore making the purchases ineligible for refund.
