With the MLB playoffs starting next week, MLB teams have begun to quarantine to ensure there is no COVID-19 outbreak during the most crucial stretch of the season. After the Wild Card round, every remaining team will head to Texas where they’ll essentially be in a bubble, much like what the NBA is doing.
Though they won’t be in the bubble as long as the NBA players have, it still has the chance to be multiple weeks. On Thursday afternoon, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts shared some pretty awesome news that LA’s ownership group will be doing in regards to the bubble.
“Our ownership group allowed us to have our families to go into a separate bubble to quarantine to then join us in Texas,” Roberts said. “It’s something that’s coming out of pocket from ownership so I’m very grateful.”
That’s freaking awesome!
