Nationals players vote against travel to play Marlins

July 28th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Nationals held a team vote on the club’s scheduled upcoming trip to play the coronavirus-stricken Marlins in Miami, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter). The “vast majority” of players oppose boarding the flight.

This was more of a straw poll than a binding vote, as Major League Baseball possesses decisionmaking authority on scheduling. But the fact it was held at all represents a message sent upstairs by the defending World Series champs.

    Very smart on the part of the Nationals to cancel the trip to Florida. Florida is flooded with Covid-19 cases. I am sure it wasn’t an easy decision, but I applaud them.

    Hey! Let’s play baseball in a pandemic! What can go wrong? It’s a hoax right? I’m sure there will be no problems with football at all.
