Should The MLB Season Have Fans?

I’ve covered if they will, who will, and how they will, but I haven’t covered if the MLB should have fans. So that’s the question that I’m going to be answering in this article — Should the MLB season have fans?

As of the late in some places, COVID-19 cases are picking up. Places like Texas and Florida that reopened too soon are feeling the effects of opening prematurely. And at this point, 3 out of the 5 teams that are in consideration of fans are in Florida and Texas.

This time the younger generation is getting most of the cases in Texas and Florida — so we have to look at the average person who watches a baseball game. That’s not an easy question, but I’ll try to take my best guesstimate.

My guess is that the average fan is a person aged 21-45. Those people have made up for the majority of the cases in Texas and Florida.

Based on this, I don’t think that it would be a good idea to have fans in Texas or Florida. But what about a place that’s decreasing in cases, like Chicago?

Protocols are going to be everything if fans return to the stands. At this point, we don’t know the protocols so I can’t make a final decision. But if I feel that the protocols put in place are safe and protect the fans, then I’m all for fans returning to the stands.
