Hey, Fisher Cats: Keep the fans informed
Perhaps it’s a league rule as opposed to an internal Fisher Cats decision, but the team and the baseball league would be better off by being more forthcoming with their fans.
The local AA club has had to cancel games as the season comes to an end because somebody, somewhere, either contracted COVID-19 or came into contact with someone who had the virus. But unlike the big leagues, the Fisher Cats won’t say much of anything other than there was testing of “members” of the organization. But it didn’t involve fans, the front office, or game staff.
Well, that pretty much leaves the ball players. The Boston Red Sox have been bitten by the bug and have kept their fans informed, identifying which players are out due to virus protocols. The Sox have had a rough season, but being up front with fans has probably engendered more fan support and interest.
Manchester wants the Fisher Cats to succeed. The team, and the league, should keep that in mind.
