Miss baseball? So does Michael Chavis.
But the Red Sox infielder is still getting his swings in while staying home.
He's not missing many Wiffle balls. Take a look:

Since the Green Monster isn’t available at the moment I’ll be social distancing balls across these trees until baseball is back. 🤷♂️ I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to get away from all the noise of everyday life and get outside away from screens. It’s been extremely refreshing and actually enjoyable. Find the positives they’re always out there! Everybody stay positive and safe out there!
Chavis sends one over the Green Monster (a.k.a. hedges) and what, in his neighborhood, passes for Landsdowne Street onto the opposite sidewalk.
With even the Red Sox logo maintaining its social distance (see below), let's hope Chavis stays six feet away from passers-by as he retrieves his blast.
The 24-year-old was hoping to be in Toronto with his teammates for Opening Day on Thursday, but that's not going to happen with Major League Baseball, like the rest of the sports world, on hold due to the coronavirus crisis.
Chavis is slated to be the Red Sox second baseman after his solid rookie season (.254, 18 homers, 58 RBI, .766 OPS) in 2019 was cut short by injuries.
