MLB to see high school with a virus protocol

NEW YORK – Baseball in the big leagues will look like a high school ball this year under a protocol for dealing with the corona virus, with rain in ballpark not recommended and players might come in uniforms, like they did when they were teenagers.

Team personnel will be prohibited from eating at restaurants while traveling.

Even Phillie Phantic and Mr. Met will disappear, banned from the field along with all the other team mascots.

Traditional exchanges of the lineup cards will be eliminated, along with high-fives, first mounds, and male and female bats, according to the 67-page draft of the 2020 Operations Manual proposed by Major League Baseball. This guideline can be negotiated with the players’ association.

Teams will be allowed to have 50 players each under the plan, with the active number for each match still being negotiated.

Spitting is prohibited along with water jugs and the use of saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and cryotherapy rooms. Hitting in an indoor cage is not recommended, beating gloves are recommended.

At the time of the blowout practice is to wear a mask, the jar room telephone is disinfected after each use. Players may not touch their faces to signal, and they are not allowed to lick their fingers. Teams are encouraged to hold outdoor meetings, players are spread apart.

The team was asked to respond with suggested input on May 22. The protocol was written by senior MLB vice president Patrick Houlihan, Bryan Seeley and Chris Young, and vice president Jon Coyles. Young is a former pitcher who retires after the 2017 season.

The protocol includes the details of testing for team staff, which are divided into three levels. All others may not enter the clubhouse, excavation room and field.

Seats in empty seats near break rooms should be used to keep a distance, according to diagram in the manual, and the pitcher starting the next day can’t sit in the dugout. Everyone must keep their distance during the “Star-Spangled Banners” and “God Bless America,”

The fielder is “pushed to retreat a few steps from the baserunner” between pitches. First and third base coaches do not approach baserunners or referees, and players cannot socialize with opponents.

Managers and trainers must wear masks while in the excavation room. All parties traveling – including players – must wear personal protective equipment while on buses and flights. Forbidden restaurants on the street, including those in the hotel, as well as the hotel fitness center.

A ball will be discarded after being touched by many players, and throwing the ball around the field will be inhibited. Personnel who rub the ball with mud for the referee must use gloves.
