July 23rd marked the beginning of Major League Baseball’s 2020 season, seeing an influx of viewers that ranged above four million. 2020s Opening Day became the most-watched event in MLB since 2011. However, that positive news is being outweighed by concerns regarding the coronavirus. Details regarding their infected players are being kept private by MLB Corporate, with inside sources clarifying that the Miami Marlins have experienced an outbreak of COVID-19.
Rob Manfred and MLB Personnel actively avoided questions on infected players, claiming that all professional baseballers tested negative for coronavirus. Statements adverted towards the New York Yankees defeating the Washing Nationals at 4-1. Gerrit Cole obtained his initial victory under the banner of New York, showing that his $325 Million contracts from December 2019 were well spent.
ESPN indicated that live broadcast between the New York Yankees & Washington Capitals saw an increased 232% viewership from 2019. The Seattle Mariners played against the Boston Red Sox for 2019s MLB Opening Day, which garnered 1.2 Million views. The highest viewership count for July 23rd was 4.4 Million.
Ratings for Major League Baseball’s Opening Day was at 7.8, the highest obtained for ESPN since the 2015 season. Clarification on viewership details emphasized that the 2nd game on Opening Day for 2020, which was played between the Los Angeles Dodgers & San Francisco Giants, saw 2.7 million viewers.
Anthony Fauci Throws Season’s First Pitch
The lowest rating period for MLBs 2020 Opening Day was during the “First Pitch”, which was thrown by Doctor Anthony Fauci. Analysts suspect that falsified claims against Anthony Fauci from the Trump Administration have prompted POTUS’s constitutions to hate the doctor. A large percentage of MLB Fans support the administration of President Donald Trump, making a natural correlation towards why viewership numbers were diminishing for half an hour.
Claims from the Trump Administration are incorrect, with politicians unaware of the science & biology behind infectious diseases. Doctor Anthony Fauci is the Director of “America’s National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases”. His role in the scientific-medical community is prevalent, holding managerial positions with the Centre for Disease Control. He’s also aided multiple Presidents in how to handle a virus pandemic. Donald Trump is the 1st to ignore Doctor Anthony Fauci, with America seeing their highest-infection levels from any virus in history.
