Touching the baseball is only a small part of the problem. I think what's more problematic is being in close proximity to every player from the other team and the home plate umpire. 

Which they won't be able to get away from unless they just say see ya next year.

Catchers already wear a mask so they should be fine. I suggest that everyone simply stop breathing. We have become a bunch of wimps scared of their own shadow. Lunatics truly are running the asylum. Fill the parks and play ball.

There will be less close contact in an entire 82-game baseball season then there was by similar aged men and women in Minneapolis these past several days.We will know within 10-days or so whether they have anything to worry about.If there isn't a huge spike in cases in the Twin Cities next week...let's play ball.

As long as they're not playing in a nursing home, their chances of catching Covid-19 are pretty small....

Are you suggesting Covid somehow just magically manifests in nursing homes? How do you think it gets there in the first place?

I think there's a baseball/Covid slogan in here somewhere. "Catchers aren't the only one's who need to wear masks"?

I bet someone can do better.

I hope the poster means a chance of dying, because anybody can get it, it is just the odds are way worse for people in nursing homes or long term care.

I'm not suggesting anything other than if one is worried about contracting Covid-19 in Minnesota, then it's far more likely you'll get it by visiting a Minnesota nursing home than at Target Field.Reusse, for one, almost always can do better.
