The Cubs’ game against the Brewers in Milwaukee Tuesday night was still a go.
The Cubs were offered vaccines before the season opener. Manager David Ross wanted to clear up some misconceptions about his coaches Driver and Young.
“Many of our players are getting vaccinated. I talked to Craig and C.Y. last night, and they gave me permission to share their information. Craig’s already gotten one of the shots when it was first available to him. C.Y. had already been fully vaccinated, but it’s two weeks after you get the second shot that you’re fully vaccinated – that would have been Sunday. Chances are he’d contracted the COVID before,” Ross said. “They don’t want to scare anybody. They think the reason why they feel as good as they do is because they’ve had some version of the shot.”MORE NEWS: Leroy Long Charged With Shooting On Dan Ryan Expressway Near 87th Street
