Today, Spring Training 2.0 or Summer Camp as many people call it has officially begun for MLB teams as league commissioner Rob Manfred hopes to have the regular season start in a few weeks. However, there’s a possibility that baseball will be played without its best player, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
Los Angeles Angels superstar outfielder Mike Trout expressed a lot of concern on Friday about taking part in the 2020 MLB season amid the coronavirus pandemic because his wife, Jessica, is pregnant with the couple's first child.
"Honestly, I still don't feel that comfortable. It's gonna be tough," Trout told reporters. "I've got to be really cautious these next couple weeks. I don't want to test positive. I don't want to bring it back to my wife. It's a tough situation we're in."
Trout is obviously one of the most popular stars in the MLB. It would be a huge blow not just for the Angels, but for the entire sport if he doesn’t play this season.
