First, the coronavirus pandemic interrupted what Clint Frazier was hoping would be a breakthrough season. Now, it may be endangering a close friend of his.
“It’s something that resonates with me because I do have a friend that, she’s going through her final stages of her residency in San Diego, and she is sick right now,” the Yankees outfielder, who is now back home in Atlanta, said on the YES Network “We’re Here” podcast. “She hasn’t gotten the results back, but it seems like she could have the virus right now.
“It resonates more because she’s in an area where she can be more likely to be sick. It upsets me to see that she is going through it.”
Frazier hopes everyone practicing self-distancing measures is aware of the sacrifices first responders like his friend are making every day. Without them, so many more lives would be lost.
“It upsets me to see other first responders do get sick and there are consequences that come with it,” Frazier said. “At the end of the day, we all should be very grateful for the stuff that they do to ensure that when something does happen like this that we do get through it.”
“I can’t say thank you enough to all of them out there and just keep doing what you can do, because it’s all appreciated.”
