    Re: Covid-19

    Florida issues a stay-at-home order for at least 30 days.

    With an estimated four-week pre-season needed, baseball is unofficially delayed until at least June 1.

      I've wondered about that. Once the weather is better, is there any reason (other than making travel easier) that ST would have to be confined to FL?

        I had to wear a mask for three months post transplant anytime I went out. Going out meant to Yale for a follow up. This was winter and it was unbearably hot

          Spring training needs special facilities. Florida is where they are.

            And Arizona. But to her point, perhaps they can make do with less than ideal facilities in less than ideal circumstances?

              Of course, I compare it to the rubber oxygen mask that was clipped to my helmet for all those years. It needed to seal to my face, in case of pressurization problems. Nuisance? Absolutely. Uncomfortable? Yep. Unbearably so? Not really. A surgical mask seems pretty tame, by comparison.
              Everybody reacts differently. One persons minor irritation is another persons unbearable discomfort.

              I suspect those who do not feel comfortable with constant mask usage probably would not be happy being a military pilot either.

                During WW II spring training was held in the north. But once you get to June I would think teams could train at their home ballparks.

                  The Yankees trained in good old Asbury Park, NJ. Just a quick 5-10 minutes from my home.

                    Right. And it's not as if the major league ballparks don't have anything to work with. Isn't a lot of equipment hauled down to FL anyway? Bring it home.

                          trying wearing something like this on a humid 90 degree day while spraying chemicals and then talk to me about unbearably uncomfortable.

                          You wanna know what? You gotta problem with Luis Cessa, you gotta problem with me. And I suggest you let that one marinate

                              It's shock to me too. I guess I better start wearing baseball hats.
