There is no question that these are unprecedented times for the Colorado Rockies, Major League Baseball, their fans, and our society. However, even during all of the not-so-great repercussions of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease pandemic, there have been some moments that have brought a somewhat bright spot in the day.
While we don’t know exactly when the Colorado Rockies will be back on the field, we do know that it is being reported that each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams will commit $1 million to ballpark employees who would not have been paid due to the postponement of the baseball season.
It’s good to hear that the people who help make the game day experience at Coors Field so terrific will be taken care of by the franchise and not left behind, despite the lack of baseball.
Now, as a side note, let’s hope that Major League Baseball figures out a way to take care of its minor leaguers with pay as well. That would be some of the best news that fans have heard in quite some time, pandemic or not. In light of the generosity and goodwill the overall $30 million donation has generated, maybe it’s time to keep some of the money flowing for the next generation of players. Just a thought.
