2012 was my PR year for most Orioles games attended in a single season. I went to at least 25 games that year, including every statue game, and two games at Fenway in September. It was a great season, especially after those 14 years we all endured.
One last astonishing comparison this morning. One month ago was March 9. There was a lot of skepticism of communities & companies moving against coronavirus that week (NBA, NCAA). March 9: --> 704 US cases --> 26 US deaths April 9: --> 465,329 cases --> 16,672 deaths
And these are people who have been tested and deaths counted .
So the UFC planned to hold something in California on tribal land. Disney which owns ESPN told them to shut it down. And that is the end of that. So I am guessing if baseball is planning on airing their games on ESPN they wont' have much luck. And they were already planing on paying the players 40 percent of their pay. If ESPN isn't paying them for games what would players be payed? 10 percent of their pay?
It would seem you are perhaps wasting too much energy with common sense. We will find out more about this virus as time goes by. There seems to be more evidence that the 6 foot distancing is a rather arbitrary number without much proof. They are also finding it's viable much longer on surface and in the air than originally thought. Imagine a pitcher, steps off the mound, goes to the rosin bag, then his mouth or blows on his hand...opps, new ball??? And, testing is NOT perfect. I wish some would have as much passion for life as they do for a game....oh, there is that common sense thing again.
