Hometown hero celebrates World Series win with COVID-19

October 30, 2020

It seems that the only thing that can’t be forgotten this year is CoVid-19. Justin Turner is a Californian native, he played ball at Cal and joined the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014.


Turner was the Dodgers’ National League Championship Series MVP in 2017 and performed well in the 2020 World Series against the Rays - putting together eight hits in 25 at-bats, including two home runs.


None of that seems to matter now and the furor is growing among the wider public due to the reckless events that preceded the Dodgers ’win.


The Dodgers 3rd baseman was pulled from the title-clinching game in the 8th innings immediately after the results were in, showing Turning tested positive for CoVid-19. The league immediately placed Turner into isolation for the safety of those around him.


Even though he had effectively been in the thick of things at the ballpark for almost the entire game.


While Turner and the Dodgers might not been tirely at fault - it is clear that Turner ignored instructions and the agreed-upon joint protocols, returning to the field to celebrate the win with his teammates.


Without wearing a mask too.
