In the third link provided, the ages of the deaths are 23 and 20 and morbidly obese. It was news because they were siblings, but they weren't children.

I don't think there is any "seems like" as far as kids not reacting as severely to COVID19, they pretty obviously do not. In the 26k+ cases under age 18, 6k of which under under 5, in California, there are 0 (confirmed) deaths.

As far as where the breathless media coverage is, I'd say it's pretty much there. Youth deaths are individuals that get big headlines, which is "good." If that's the case it's still very rare.

As COVID relates to kids, I'm a parent of 3 and 1 has had pneumonia before and one had a bad case of seasonal flu early this year. It's a scary thing because you know it "can" kill even though it usually doesn't and you love your kids so obviously you worry.

Keep in mind that the statistics that Snapper pointed out for California is only confirmed cases and obviously excludes those who were never symptomatic and tested.

So while I'd be concerned as a parent if my children were diagnosed with COVID-19, that is the same concern I'd have with any other ailment and I have yet to see any scientific or statistical evidence that it is any more dangerous to minors than any other ailment they can get.

Obviously there are tragic exceptions to every trend. And I certainly understand that the bigger concern is the spread that children these ages are likely to cause when put all together.

Jordan Hicks, Cardinals closer, has opted out, citing a health condition. He has Type 1 diabetes.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

"Brewers ace Brandon Woodruff had to remind himself during an extended outing the other day to retrieve his rosin bag behind the mound after each of his innings. Catchers have caught themselves throwing down to third base after a strikeout, and first baseman Logan Morrison has sometimes been unable to deny the habit of throwing the baseball around the infield after a groundout."

I'm honestly curious about the safety protocol involving throwing to third after a strikeout and around the horn on a ground out...what am I missing?

Fewer bare hands needlessly on the ball, one of those silly things they're doing for "safety."

Maybe everyone needs wipes to clean the ball each time they field it and before they throw it? Or everyone can just wear gloves on their throwing hand... [wink]

This was tossed around in our athletics meeting to be able to have our high school contact days for baseball.

The Mariners have improved the Brewers' cardboard cutout idea:

Introducing the launch of the Mariners Seat Fleet! For just $30, you can purchase a recycle-friendly version of yourself that will sit in on all of the game action at T-Mobile Park this season while you're safe at home. Plus, the Mariners will donate a portion of every purchase to non-profit organizations supporting COVID-related relief efforts in our communities. What's more? If your cutout "catches" a foul ball during a game, we'll mail you the baseball!

I'll put a full-body cutout of Attanasio in my patio window if he sends me $100.*

* = JosephC reserves the right to move/remove the Attanasio cut-out at his own sole discretion for any reason or no reason at any time without notice or liability to Attanasio.

Some summer leagues in the state are wiping the game balls with disinfectant every time it leaves the field.

The whole idea went kaput for me as soon as the Guess Who comparison was made, and now I can't think of anything else when I see them.

Why can't they play in Nashville? The Sounds ownership really wants baseball there this summer.

no minor league stadium currently meets major league standards with regards to lights and/or clubhouse space.

I think it was fitting that the first real game of the season was shortened due to rain last night.

But still was the most-watched MLB regular season game in 9 years.
