No games and no organized workouts are making baseball players a bit stir crazy.
Jason Kipnis vented about the start of the season getting delayed even further. Kipnis signed a minor league deal with the Cubs this offseason and was fighting for a roster spot in spring training.
His wait to play in front of his home crowd after growing up in suburban Northbrook will go on for a while longer.
I agree with every shutdown and safety precaution being taken... safety first... but this sucks even more cause all I’ve been waiting to do is play in front of a packed Wrigley. #oneday #whenthetimeisright— Jason Kipnis (@TheJK_Kid) March 16, 2020
The start of the season is still a while off, but it’s also possible that when play begins, teams could play in front of empty stadiums. That means Kipnis could play in Wrigley before he plays in front of a packed Wrigley.
Of course all of this is up in the air, but the anxiety of the players is palpable.
