Playing a Major League Baseball season amid the COVID-19 pandemic was always going to be risky. Yet it only took four days for the virus to break out among one MLB team, causing the postponement of two games and maybe more to come.
Naturally, the COVID-19 outbreak among the Miami Marlins was the main topic on WISE Sports Radio‘s baseball segment. Eleven players and two coaches tested positive for the virus a day after the Marlins played the Philadelphia Phillies. Should that game have been played on Sunday? Can MLB really expect to play a season?
If there’s one takeaway from the Marlins situation, it’s probably that players shouldn’t be making the decisions, as the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Coaches and management should have stepped in for the health and safety of everyone involved.
