On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, World Series Champion Jim Leyritz explained why he would play under the conditions Major League Baseball is planning for the COVID-shortened 2020 season.
"I remember after coming back from the '94 strike, all we wanted to do was get back on the field and play. And again, I would have to make some considerations, but if I was a player now, would just tell my family, listen, I love you, but I want to go back to work. I want to play. It's going to be 60 games. I might not see you or three months. But you know what? I'm going to go out during this money and take care of our family and make sure that I don't come home and give somebody else something. I'll be under this quarantine, just like every frontline worker did when they were you when they were going through what they went through. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for your family. Sometimes you have to sacrifice to be able to provide for your family. And I think if I was given this situation now, I would definitely want to go back and play. And but I would also go with the notion of that I may not see my family for three or four months."
