The New York Yankees and COVID-19
The Yankees have been one of the most dominant teams in baseball over the past decade. They have won the World Series four times in that span, and they are always a contender. However, they have also had to deal with their share of injuries. Now, they are dealing with something else: the coronavirus.
The Yankees and the COVID-19 outbreak
The New York Yankees are one of the most successful baseball teams in history, winning 27 World Series titles. However, the team has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with several players and staff members testing positive for the virus.
The outbreak began in early August, when pitcher Brooks Kriske became the first Yankees player to test positive for COVID-19. Since then, a total of 17 Yankees players and staff members have tested positive for the virus.
The Yankees have been working with local health officials to contain the outbreak, but it has proven difficult to do so given the size of the team and the number of people who travel with them.
One of the biggest challenges facing the Yankees is that not all of their players are vaccinated against COVID-19. As of April 5, 2021, only six Yankees players have been vaccinated, according to The New York Times. The other 24 players on the roster have either not been vaccinated or are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine.
This could pose a serious problem for the team if someone who is not vaccinated contracts COVID-19 and spreads it to others. It is unclear how many Yankees employees have been vaccinated, but it is likely that a significant number have not yet received the vaccine.
The Yankees are not alone in this situation; several other Major League Baseball teams also have players who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. However, given the size of their roster and their recent outbreak, the Yankees may be at a greater risk than other teams.
The Yankees and the COVID-19 vaccine
As of April 5, 2021, a total of 31 Yankees players and staff members have received the COVID-19 vaccine, according to MLB’s vaccination tracker. That leaves 19 Yankees who have not yet been vaccinated against the virus.
The Yankees who have not yet been vaccinated are:
Aroldis Chapman, Zack Britton, Luis Cessa, Jonathan Loaisiga, Masahiro Tanaka, Jordan Montgomery and Deivi Garcia.
Kyle Higashioka and Chris Iannetta.
Gio Urshela, Rougned Odor, Tyler Wade, Jay Bruce and Miguel Andujar.
Aaron Hicks, Clint Frazier and Mike Tauchman.
Designated hitters/utility players:
Giancarlo Stanton and Brett Gardner.
Who is vaccinated?
The New York Yankees released a list of the players who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. The list includes some big names like Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gleyber Torres. This article will discuss the pros and cons of vaccination and what it means for the Yankees.
The vaccinated Yankees
Out of the 27 New York Yankees who have been vaccinated, only three are not vaccinated.
As of now, 24 out of the 27 New York Yankees have been vaccinated against COVID-19. The three who are not vaccinated are Aroldis Chapman, Luis Cessa and Gerritt Cole.
All other players on the roster, including manager Aaron Boone, have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
The unvaccinated Yankees
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. The Yankees compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the New York Mets of the National League.
The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the current Baltimore Orioles team), replacing the previous NL Baltimore franchise that folded after the 1900 season. In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming it the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the “New York Yankees” in 1913.
The team is nicknamed “the Bombers”, a name inspired by America’s entry into World War I that came to be applied to both aircraft and their crews. The team has won 27 World Series championships, 40 American League pennants, and Division titles. Forty-four Yankees players and eleven Yankees managers have been inducted into either the National Baseball Hall of Fame or Museum or National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. In pursuit of winning championships, the franchise has used a large payroll for most of its history since 1997, particularly when George Steinbrenner was owner from 1973 until his death in 2010. Since 2011, Brian Cashman has served as general manager of record for the Yankees .
As of June 2020, there are eight unvaccinated members of theYankees: Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Masahiro Tanaka, Tommy Kahnle, Luis Cessa, Jordan Montgomery, Jonathan Loaisiga and Luke Voit.
Why aren’t some Yankees vaccinated?
There are a number of Yankees players who are not vaccinated against the flu, and this has caused some concern among fans. While it is understandable that some people might be hesitant to get the flu shot, it is still important to remember that the flu can be a very serious illness. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu is responsible for an average of 23,600 deaths each year in the United States.
The reasons some Yankees are not vaccinated
The reasons some Yankees are not vaccinated are varied. Some people may have medical conditions that prevent them from receiving the vaccine, while others may simply choose not to get vaccinated. In some cases, people may be unable to get vaccinated due to logistical reasons, such as being unable to access a vaccination site.
The Yankees who are not vaccinated
There are a number of reasons why some Yankees are not vaccinated. Some people may not be able to receive the vaccine due to medical reasons, while others may simply refuse to get vaccinated.
Some Yankees may not be able to receive the vaccine due to medical reasons. For example, pregnant women are advised not to receive the vaccine. Additionally, people with severe allergies to ingredients in the vaccine may also be advised not to receive it.
Others may refuse to get vaccinated simply because they don’t want to. Some people may believe that the risks of getting vaccinated outweigh the benefits. Others may simply be opposed to vaccination in general.
What does this mean for the Yankees?
Last week, it was revealed that nearly half of the New York Yankees have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19. This news comes as a surprise, as the Yankees have been one of the most outspoken teams in baseball when it comes to the importance of getting vaccinated. So, what does this mean for the Yankees? Let’s take a look.
The Yankees and the COVID-19 outbreak
The Yankees are the latest team to be affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Four players and two staff members have tested positive for the virus, and the team has canceled its upcoming homestand.
This is a developing story, and we will update this post as more information becomes available.
The Yankees and the COVID-19 vaccine
The New York Yankees are one of the most successful baseball teams in history, winning 27 World Series titles. But now, the Yankees are facing a new challenge: a COVID-19 outbreak that has affected several members of the team.
The outbreak began when two players tested positive for the virus after returning from an out-of-state road trip. The team then had to cancel its home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays, and postpone two other games. In all, 17 Yankees players and staff have tested positive for COVID-19.
While the team says that all players and staff have been offered the vaccine, it’s not clear how many have actually taken it. New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that “it’s sort of a personal decision” whether or not to get vaccinated.
This is a problem not just for the Yankees, but for all of Major League Baseball. If players don’t get vaccinated, they’re putting themselves and others at risk of contracting COVID-19. And with baseball season just getting underway, there’s a real risk that more outbreaks could occur if players don’t take precautions.
