You can only hunker down for so long. My wife has had to go back to work. I never was off a day for this. In fact I had to work some weekends as well due to covid. My daughter's summer camp is full. The world moves on.
Baseball is pretty safe as sports go. Players spread out and they play in great big open outdoor spaces. Well other than Tampa. I think players will spread this but not when they are playing. Probably after the game when they are socializing.
I don’t see anyone positioning it that way. 1.2% of the players and staff tested were positive, which is a much lower figure than is estimated to exist for the general population.
Still, I do think there are reasons why the environment of pro team sports would expose players more than an average person. There’s inevitable close contact at times on the field while people are breathing hard, the dugout (bench in other sports) and locker room are relatively confined spaces, and there’s a lot of travel involved. Probably not as bad as working a check out line, but worse than a lot of other jobs.
