Sean Doolittle on the United States’ handling of COVID-19: ‘We haven’t done any of the things that other countries have done to bring sports back’
Sean Doolittle spoke to reporters after working out at Nationals Park on Sunday. The Nationals’ relief pitcher spoke about how he’s still unsure if he’ll play in the MLB’s coronavirus-shortened 2020 season and will opt-out if at any point he feels unsafe.
Doolittle also responded very thoughtfully to recent reports that some MLB team owners are considering allowing fans back into stadiums later in the season. Doolittle talked about how the coronavirus pandemic is spiraling out of control in the United States’ and the country has essentially given up its fight against COVID-19.
“We haven’t done any of the things that other countries have done to bring sports back,” Doolittle said.
