TARGET FIELD — Major League Baseball is resuming in the face of Covid-19. Several members of the Minnesota Twins are eager to begin the 2020 season, chief among them is the sometimes Twins Centerfielder, Bryon Buxton.
“Only 60 Games, surely nothing will happen,” said the 25-year old sprinting furiously into the centerfield wall during a recent training session.
Buxton, who has only ever played one non-injury plagued season since being called up to the majors in 2015, credits Twins legend Joe Mauer as inspiration.
“That dude was great” shouted Buxton, whiffing once again in the batting cages “He got paid plenty of money and couldn’t stay out of the DL to save his life.” Buxton then took a ball to the helmet, but was fine.
The career .237 hitter, then did several sprints with teammates onto the field. As he is one of the fastest players in the league, he accidentally sprinted into traffic outside Target Field.
