MLB Fans Pack Texas Rangers’ Stadium, What Social Distancing?!

 MLB Fans Pack Texas Rangers' Stadium, What Social Distancing?!

MLB fans in Texas pretended like it was 2019 on Monday … packing into the Rangers’ stadium to see a game with absolutely no regard for social distancing.

The scenes from Globe Life Field are WILD … there’s hardly an empty chair in the 40,000-seat stadium — and people wearing masks over their noses and mouths are few and far between.

In fact, it straight-up looks like nobody in the stadium has any worry that a global pandemic is still raging onward.

Of course, we knew this was coming … the Rangers announced last month they would not put a limit on attendance for Opening Day against the Blue Jays — something President Joe Biden blasted the team for.

“I think it’s a mistake,” POTUS said to ESPN last week. “They should listen to Dr. Fauci, the scientists and the experts. But, I think it’s not responsible.”

The Rangers have said repeatedly Monday will be a one-time-only event … with team president of baseball operations Jon Daniels saying he believes there will be no more sell-outs following Monday’s action.

“I think after Opening Day, reality is we’re not going to be at full capacity, I doubt it,” Daniels said.

The Rangers have insisted they’ll enforce a mask policy — only allowing fans to drop the face coverings to eat or drink.

But, one quick look behind home plate shows that just ain’t happenin’ … and it begs the question, should (and will) MLB officials step in???
