NEW YORK CITY – The Coronavirus is now having an impact on the sports world. The commissioner of baseball, Robbie Manfred, said that MLB will be implementing a ban on the tradition of high-fiving.
The practice first started many years ago, when a second baseman for the Cleveland Indians hit a homerun, and, as the was rounding the bases, the third-base coach reached out and accidentally touched the player with his open palm.
After that, other players, coaches, managers, and even hot dog vendors jumped on the high-fiving bandwagon.
But Manny, as Commissioner Manfred is called by his wife, has said that those days will soon be long gone like the seemingly mile-long homeruns that steroid-taking Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and Rafael Palmeiro used to hit.
Some of the players have said that, in lieu of high-fiving, they will simply “Butt Bump”, which will consist of the two individuals bumping each other's butts.
When told about this, the commissioner said, “I have no problem with the players butt bumping, just as long as they are both fully-clothed.”
