The mother of one of Major League Baseball’s biggest stars is trying to spread a very positive message. She has used a picture of her son to deliver a message in the name of public health during the pandemic.
Debbie Trout, the mother of Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout, posted a picture of her son rounding the bases in a mask during practice last week for MLB’s upcoming 60-game shortened season.
“If Mike Trout can wear a mask while running the bases, you can wear a mask going out in public,” she wrote with the hashtag #WearAMask.
Trout has even expressed concerns about playing the 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Trout’s wife, Jessica, wife is due to give birth to the couple’s first child in August.
He said that keeping his wife and future child healthy is his top priority, so he may elect to stop playing if an outbreak of coronavirus occurs.
