The Yankees radio booth is happy their season isn’t starting in Texas.
The Rangers announced on Wednesday that they will allow full capacity — 40,518 fans — for Opening Day at their new stadium, Globe Life Field, when they take on the Blue Jays. After that game they will have socially-distanced seating.
Yankees play-by-plan man John Sterling brought up the story to Suzyn Waldman on Wednesday night’s Yankees broadcast.
“I am glad I am not there. I am glad I am not there,” Waldman said. “Stupid.”
The Yankees travel to Texas in mid-May for a three-game series.
The Rangers are requiring fans to wear masks to all games and have instituted a three-strike policy for those who do not abide.
