As many baseball fans complain about no baseball during this awful pandemic, many people are dying and hurting economically.
I miss baseball, but I understand it is not safe to play. I have made my living from baseball.
Yes, it is strange to me when I don’t have to work during spring. However, I have adjusted. The hardest thing for me is I don’t have a timeline when Major League Baseball will return. I don’t know if I can start something that will take three months.
Nevertheless, I get angry with baseball fans who are complaining about no baseball. Yes, not seeing Mookie Betts play in a Dodger uniform is a bummer.
During this worldwide health crisis, I am reminded of what Jackie Roosevelt Robinson said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” I am trying to keep my fans entertained. They don’t need me crying about how I miss baseball. It’s unfair when people go to the beach, and we can’t have baseball. This is selfish.
The video below isn’t about baseball, but it is about a man who wants to help society as a whole. We should use his selflessness as an example of how we should be during this crisis.
