This article is more than 3 years old.

For millions of people around the country, sports serve as a welcome distraction from the news and troubles of the day.

But the coronavirus outbreak has brought the sports world to a standstill, with all major American leagues suspending or delaying their seasons.

The crisis could leave Boston sports fans without the Red Sox at Fenway Park this spring or playoff runs by the Bruins or Celtics this summer. It may even hurt the business of Boston sports down the road.

Boston Globe sports columnist Bob Ryan joined WBUR's Morning Edition host Bob Oakes to talk about this new, sports-free world.

This segment aired on March 30, 2020.
