Yes, And this is all because of more good news on the city's covert 19 situation. Cases are averaging 219 a day Now that is an 80% drop since the peak in late December, and the reason behind that is not the vaccine. Not enough people have received it yet, but it's a sign that it's following the same pattern as other respiratory viruses where they peak in the winter, and they get better in the spring and summer.

Spring Training 2021: MLB's Plan To Prevent Outbreaks
"Jeff. What's the plan around health and safety to get to something resembling normal in spring training. I mean there's a hundred page document that lays out an extremely granular fashion. What baseball is trying to do to prevent outbreaks and you remember pablo. We talked about last year. We saw with the miami marlins with saint louis. Cardinals teams are susceptible to that.
