Governor Cuomo Invites MLB to have all team's home games in NY

MLB you can come play in NY and NYC but don't try to dine indoors.
From the NY POST
ALBANY — Play ball … here!
That’s the pitch made by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to all Major League Baseball teams, saying they should come play in New York state if they are unable to play ball in their home state due to coronavirus restrictions or outbreaks.
“Major League Baseball is struggling with the challenges of playing ball in the COVID crisis. I have said from day one I thought that it was a very good idea to get sports back without fans. But, it would be televised, etc. I think it would be good for the economy, I think it would be good for the psyche, I think it would be good for the nation’s soul,” the governor said Tuesday during a conference call with reporters.
“Here’s my suggestion: I understand the challenge they’re facing. New York state could host any Major League Baseball game that any teams want to play and they could play those games in our stadiums,” Cuomo said.
“New York state has one of the lowest infection rates in the United States. New York state has a full department of health protocol system in place. We have a testing system in place. I offer to Major League Baseball: if you’re having problems playing in other states come play here,” he said.
