MILWAUKEE — Some St. Louis Cardinals players may have been at Whistling Straits on Thursday prior to players testing positive for COVID-19, social media reports said Saturday.
The Brewers home opener has been postponed twice now due to positive COVID-19 test results within the Cardinals. On Saturday, there was a reported four new cases
However, before any of the positive test results came in, former NBA player Sam Dekker called out the team saying they were golfing at Whistling Straits earlier this week.
Maybe there should be tighter lockdowns around the MLB?? I’m no expert but I don’t think it’s a great idea that the @Cardinals can just go and golf Whistling Straits yesterday knowing the season is potentially in jeopardy. That’s just counterproductive, no?— Sam Dekker (@dekker) July 31, 2020
There are several social media posts indicating the players were at the course.
Some people are even saying the MLB needs to be more strict with players and keeping them safe and healthy.
Even Cubs star Anthony Rizzo tweeted about player safety within the MLB.
Player safety? @mlb let’s sit around for 8 plus hours inside the clubhouse.. I’m sure I can find that somewhere in the 113 page player safety protocol.— Anthony Rizzo (@ARizzo44) July 30, 2020
Since the postponement of Saturday's game, social media posts started showing up saying the Cardinals were also seen at a casino.
Neither of these rumors have been confirmed. However, they are taking Twitter by storm. Fans are even calling out the Cardinals saying they shouldn't ruin the season for all other teams.
