Coronavirus Outbreak Hits Marlins, Forces Cancellation of MLB Games

July 28, 2020
The 2020 MLB season began this past Thursday, and it took less than a week for the league to have its first coronavirus outbreak. Four Miami Marlins starters tested positive ahead of the team's game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, with seven more players and some staff testing positive on Monday. Then, on Tuesday, four more Marlins players tested positive for the virus. Both Monday and Tuesday's Orioles-Marlins and Yankees-Phillies games have been postponed. and players from the Washington Nationals voted against going to Miami for their series this weekend. Anthony Tall, President of The Aspire Sports Group, explains his reaction to seeing the Marlins play on Sunday after learning of their positive tests. Tall also discusses what Commissioner Rob Manfred needs to do to prevent a further spread of the virus.
