Toronto Blue Jays infielder Travis Shaw apologized for recent tweets that criticized his team’s plan to have players stick to the Rogers Centre and connecting hotel if games are played in Canada.
On Friday, he tweeted: “All summer isn’t gonna happen. Not an option.”
During a video conference call on Sunday, Shaw said he’d been “a little tone-deaf” and said his tweets were made out of “frustration.”
“I apologize for that, at no point was I saying I was going to break the rules or we’re going to break the rules,” Shaw said. “We know as a team that’s not an option and to get through this season, everybody is going to have to buy in and everybody is going to have to adhere to whatever protocols we’re set under.”
Shaw told reporters that Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro and general manager Ross Atkins spoke to the team’s players on Saturday.
Shaw also tweeted a transcript of his comments from Sunday.

The newly-discovered Comet Neowise – a big-tailed beauty which has become the brightest comet visible in the U.S. in a quarter-century – is now visible in Michigan in the evenings as well as just before sunrise. Tonight and early tomorrow will likely be good viewing times, forecasters say.
And its expected to stay in view for at least the next 10 days. But youll want to catch it before it disappears, because it wont cruise back by for nearly 7,000 years, scientists say.
Mostly clear skies tonight should allow for a viewing of Comet NEOWISE shortly after sunset and again prior to sunrise, meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Gaylord said earlier today.
To check for it tonight, go outside around 10 p.m. and look north/northwest in the sky, right around the horizon. To try to catch it before sunrise, youll want to look to the northeast in the sky, about 10 degrees above the horizon. The best early-morning viewing time will be around 5 a.m
Its best seen with a good pair of binoculars or even a telescope, but its tail recently got brighter and it can be seen with your eyes. Its approach will get closer until about July 23, scientists have said.
The comet was discovered in March via NASAs Neowise infrared space telescope, according to the Associated Press. It has a official name – Comet C/2020 F3 – but the telescopes name has become the comets moniker.
Researchers say the comet is about 3 mile across. Its origins are ancient. Its nucleus is covered with sooty material dating back to the origin of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago, the AP said.
Neowise is expected to head back out toward our outer solar system in mid-August, but should be visible until then.
Because of its parabolic orbit, it will be about 6,800 years before Neowise swings back in view, so I wouldnt suggest waiting for the next pass, said the telescopes deputy principal investigator, Joe Masiero of NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, according to the AP.
Stargazers and photographers in Michigan and the Great Lakes region have been posting photos of the comet on social media for the last few days. Wee included a few below so youll know what youre looking for if youre heading out to search the skies.
