Fans react to Cardinals players contracting COVID-19, delaying games


ST. LOUIS – The Cardinals game in Milwaukee was canceled today due to two players testing positive for COVID-19. Just one week ago fans were celebrating the Cardinals home opener as best as they could with restrictions in place.

Now fans have been taking to social media saying they’re not surprised by the two positive cases inside the Cardinals organization.

The St. Louis MLB team made this announcement in an official statement saying the two players tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday and have been instructed to self-isolate in their hotel rooms.

Some fans outside of Busch Stadium are now wondering why the MLB didn’t go with the bubble approach that the NBA is currently implementing to put all players in one location to finish out the season.

“For it to only last less than a week, it’s so disappointing,” Cardinals fan Steve Douglass said.

The team said in a statement they are contact tracing any interaction with those infected players and plan to continue to self-isolate.
