MLB players can now get suspended for the season for breaking COVID rules

Major League Baseball fumbled its grand reopening with outbreaks in multiple MLB locker rooms before playing two full weeks of games without fans. At one point the commissioner warned the players association of a shutdown if test results didn’t improve, and now the two sides have come together in agreement on harsher punishments for any rule-breakers.

Some of the new team safety protocols include:

— Masks to be worn at all times when not on the playing field, even in the dugout

— Players must wear masks at the hotel at all times whenever they’re outside their own hotel room

— Players must notify team compliance whenever they wish to leave the hotel

— No bars, lounges or malls on the road or at home

— Team personnel will be reduced on trips

All of this comes from national baseball writer Jared Diamond on Twitter, who also notes players can now be suspended for the rest of the season if they refuse to follow orders. A written warning will come first, then the suspension is in play from there if necessary.

They should’ve bubbled.

    Technically they didn’t mention casinos, and I heard on the radio that a bunch of Cardinal players went to one recently. Maybe they think bars covers that, but someone could argue the point, and some players probably would.

    Also, it’s nice to know the 2nd comment above somehow got past the “Are you human?” Captcha.

      1. Was only a rumor

      2.the rumored players are not the infected players

      3 The casino in question could not find a Cardinal player having been in the casino

    One comment above is another good sign that KSR should require the use of real names.

    I thought tobacco / seeds and ‘spitting’ was/were illegal; apparently not. I’ve been watching every Braves game since ‘pre-season’. It is prevalent.
