Seth McGarry, a pitcher in the Philadelphia Phillies minor league system, has never really not played baseball. But with baseball stadiums closed around the nation due to the COVID-19, he might spend his summer without the game.
"My entire past and childhood was always spent at a baseball field. I love competing," McGarry told CNA. He started playing when he was five years old, attended Florida Atlantic University on scholarship, and was drafted into the minor leagues at age 21, before he graduated.
The baseball world has been reluctant to make a decisive call for the season. McGarry says that his team has spent months in a state of uncertainty.
"We've had to be in limbo and on standby, where we still had to train and throw and lift everyday to stay ready in case something happened," McGarry said.
