Dodgers: Baseball Fans Everywhere React to Games Being Cancelled

Fans took to social media to voice their concern over baseball being cancelled.



Just 24 hours ago, in simpler times, I was confirming my travel plans for an eagerly awaited trip out to Opening Weekend in LA in just 14 short days, and here I sit after what feels like a full two weeks has already past, stunned, sad, and confused. Like most baseball and Dodgers fans, I feel lost. No baseball? What?? So it’s just going to…STOP? How long will it be gone? Where will the players go? What about their families, their development?

Keep the players safe, keep the fans safe, keep the club employees and everyone in the extended sports world safe, of course. But no sports? NO BASEBALL? This is so beyond normal that there isn’t a word for it.

Last night when news started ramping up on Twitter, I saw a quote from Dave Roberts to Pedro Moura of The Athletic:

“Until we get a handle on what’s real and what’s gonna happen,” Roberts said, “I think we’re just in a world of unknowns.”

And that was before MLB announced that the start of the season will be delayed by at least two weeks.

We need Joe and Orel, or Vin Scully, to have us all gather ‘round (virtually, of course) and tell us everything is going to be ok, but in their absence, we are here for you Dodgers Nation, and we want to know how you’re feeling.

 

Here are a few reactions across social media so far…and it’s not even Friday The 13th yet!

I have to say I can relate to this one:

…and this one:

And the players, of course.

Needless to say, there’s much more to come on this and we will keep you posted throughout. We are all fans like you and want only safety and health for the entire Dodgers community and beyond, and will be taking it day by day. A world of unknowns, indeed.

Stay well, Dodgers Nation.

  1. Personally i think the news media and politicans are pushing this and keeping it in the spot light i’m not saying it’s not that bad but come on you can’t even buy a roll of toilet paper in the store people are panicking you would think its the end of the world Trump is doing a very good job of handling this a lot better than Odumba did which was late and nobody said a thing come on people settle down.

    • This reaction was late too at least be fair and unbiased. It took him until just a day ago to take this seriously and start doing the things we should’ve done weeks ago. I put the blame on the stupid American public being selfish panicked little pieces of garbage and buying up all the food and supplies leaving nothing for the rest of us

  2. You said it. It’s fear. Fear of death. Fear of living. To many, their mortality has come into play and it terrifies them. The old generation of the 20’s and 30’s faced so many hardships and learned to deal with them head on. The weakness of today’s world is showing. Your faith in God cannot be tested when you don’t believe in one to begin with, and it is showing. Preparation is one thing, but we are watching compete panic fed by the news media with their fancy virus graphics, its menacing music and over dramatic newscasters. This is the drama they live for. America lives for “reality TV” Well, they are getting it.
    Baseball will return, when baseball returns. Somehow, the Astros trash cans are meaningless now.
    Be safe and calm. Pray for those who are suffering and don’t forget your neighbor who might need some help right now.
