MLB says 14 teams have reached the 85 percent threshold of vaccinated players while two other teams are approaching the mark. If a team hits that threshold, then baseball allows for the relaxation of of safety protocols.
Goes to show that professional athletes are dealing with the same pressures as us common folk. Roll up your sleeve or live with protocols the rest of your life.
From MLB/MLBPA: 14 Clubs have reached the threshold of 85% or more of their Tier 1 Individuals being considered fully vaccinated, which will allow for the relaxation of certain health and safety protocols for their Tier 1 Individuals. Two other teams on the verge of the same.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) May 21, 2021
“Tier 1 individuals”? This is bizarre behavior that Americans shouldn’t tolerate. We’re naming the vaccinated like they’re disinfected from a flesh-eating virus. And what’s worse is that not a single sports writer at ESPN questions the lunacy. They follow along like it’s jury duty.
A league that follows science says Yankee Stadium can only hold 15,000, but just miles away, Madison Square Garden is sold out — indoors. We shouldn’t allow sports leagues to pressure us into a vaccine. The players shouldn’t, either.
Will this ever end?
