I would assume, if there was any substance to this, that MLB could adjust the schedule in future years to place all the games on the same day. Overseas games wouldn't count towards the US national holiday.
It's a cute idea, but the average American worker is unproductive enough as it is, so I don't personally advocate more PTO.
