A player of the Toronto Blue Jays decided to get out of the bubble created at the Rogers Centre could receive a fine of$ 750,000.
When the season was shortened in major league baseball will begin in the next few weeks, members of the Jays will be isolated in the facilities of the team and in a neighbouring hotel.
According to TSN, if ever one of them does not comply with the isolation, he will receive a heavy fine, which is the maximum allowed by the canadian government in its measures for the fight against the pandemic. The sports channel adds that the athletes could even receive a small sentence in prison.
The player of before-field of the Blue Jays ‘ Travis Shaw did not seem very pleased to learn of this.
“We were told two weeks… not the whole summer. Throughout the summer, it is really too much,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
It would seem that the players of the trainings that will come to play against the Jays in Toronto will also be able to receive this impressive ticket offence.
When he spoke of the bubble for the first time, the president of the Blue Jays, Mark Shapiro, said that “the teams going to Toronto would be subject to the same procedures and restrictions that the players at home”.
