As a new dad, Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is not feeling particularly safe playing baseball this season. Is he going to opt-out?
Everything from how Major League Baseball has handled the negotiations for resuming play to, most recently, the delay in COVID-19 test results has been a complete disaster. And while the Chicago Cubs have returned to Wrigley Field to ramp up activities ahead of play resuming on July 24, third baseman Kris Bryant isn’t feeling too keen on the idea of playing baseball amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I wanted to play this year,” said Bryant. “Because I thought it would be safe. Honestly, I don’t really feel that.”
