Yankees 3B Coach Phil Nevin Has Covid-19 ‘Breakthrough’ Positive

Fully vaccinated New York Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin has tested positive for Covid-19. This is what is known as a “breakthough positive” case. While the vaccines all have a very high efficacy rate, they’re not 100%, so these things do happen.

Nevin, who began his professional baseball career as the first overall pick in the 1992 MLB Draft, is currently in isolation while the team continues contact tracing. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said the tracing doesn’t involve any players, and he expects the game tonight at the Tampa Bay Rays to go on as scheduled.

As the COVID-19 vaccine continues to rollout across the country, some Major League Baseball teams are doing a much better job with the process than others. Obviously, MLB players, for the most part, are not typically in the categories and demographic classifications that are high risk, and therefore prioritized in the rollout.

Yanks Announce COVID Safety Guidelines for Yankee Stadium Entry

COVID-19 is not over, just because we have three vaccines in wide circulation right now. Yes, a lot of people are getting vaccinated, everyday, but there is still a very long ways to go in terms of getting the rest of the population vaxxed. Whether youve received your shot or not, or if you’re in between doses, you still must protect yourself.

This pandemic is probably in the 6th or 7th inning right now, but if we let up, it will rage on well into extra innings. Tomorrow brings Major League Baseball opening day 2021, and with it, stringent guidelines for entry into ballparks.

Derek Jeter Rookie Cards: Top 3 Cards, Worth and Investment Advice

derek jeter

Derek Jeter was drafted straight out of high school to the prestigious New York Yankees organization during the 1992 MLB draft. It wasn’t until 1995 that he would make his MLB debut, but from there he would never look back as he helped the Yankees to five World Series victories.

Jeter was a fourteen time All-Star and was known for his strong defense, although newer findings using advanced stats and sabermetrics may refute that claim. Besides his defense, Jeter was a strong batter that consistently hit for high averages and made smart plays.

Earlier this week #BoycottMLB was a top trending hash tag on Twitter, and for your sake, I hope you did not click on it. I’m still recovering from the brain damage that I suffered upon looking at it. Almost all of the content posted with that hash tag was provided by people who completely miss the point of taking a knee during the national anthem.

Just like we saw in the NFL, when Colin Kaepernick and company kneeled during the “Star Spangled Banner,” you had legions of people who simply couldn’t understand the true point of this exercise- protesting police brutality and racial inequality. One guy who really gets it, and always has, is New York Yankees rightfielder Aaron Judge. When the San Francisco Giants knelt before an exhibition game on Tuesday night, it was a hot topic nationally.

Now we have real life 2020 regular season Major League Baseball (NYY currently leads 4-1, top of the sixth during a rain delay). And like everything else in America, this event is overflowing with political overtones. Every POTUS, with the exception of Jimmy Carter and the current one, has thrown out the first pitch on opening day since William Howard Taft.
