Rob Manfred is notably disappointed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, who acquired the 2020 MLB Championship at Globe Life Field on October 28th. The majority of team personnel were following Covid Guidelines, with one individual being seen breaking protocol multiple times. Justin Turner ignored MLB Representatives that requested his permittance in following Covid Guidelines. Turner refused those instructions and began celebrating with his teammates without a facemask. This is drastically concerning considering that Turner had tested positive for COVID-19 during the 7th inning. Justin Turner wouldn’t spend more than two hours in a designated quarantine zone before returning to the field.
Initially, Justin Turner had returned to the field dawning a facemask. Minutes after the celebrations began & photographers began capturing the moment, Justin Turner removed his facemask. He’d pose for numerous team photos, sustaining close contact with multiple players & coaching personnel. It meant that Turner willing infected other teammates for his selfish glory, an action that’s prompted MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred to initiate an investigation into Justin Turner. Being the first player to ignore the Covid Guidelines could encourage Turner’s early retirement from Major League Baseball.
