  • There have been cancelations, though.

  • The Miami Marlins home opener last night was one of them called off because at least 14 players and coaches tested positive for Cove in 19.

  • The National Basketball Association was in the midst of its 2019 2020 season when it had to postpone games because of Cove In 19 NBA games were scheduled to resume in three days.

  • But the games that are being played right now don't look the same, and they don't sound the same.

  • The crowds were missing the cheers and boos.

  • Air silent officials were still debating how to bring actual fans and not the cardboard ones back in the stadiums.

  • And while people are allowed to attend some of South Korea's baseball games, major changes are easy to see.

  • This is what a baseball game looks like in South Korea during a pandemic.

  • As of today Sunday, 10% of fans are allowed into the stadium toe watch live.

  • But of course there are rules.

  • You've got the markings on the ground to make sure this social distancing within the queuing itself and then as you come in.

  • Gone are the days of flashing your ticket and walking in.

  • It's in there.

  • And if you do, there is actually a quarantine area just outside of the stadium, in case there are those who have a high temperature.

  • Now one father here with his 11 year old son tells me there to create the Korean baseball atmosphere.

  • Everyone needs to come together.

  • Um, it's difficult to justify paying the rent, being in a small, confined space and having no access thio being outdoors by yourself.

  • We're based in Darien, Connecticut.

  • Since 2015 to 2020 lot of cities have not grown as rapidly as they did in the first half of the decade, so it's not just New York, it's Chicago, it's Los Angeles, it's it's a kind of softening of growth and monk cities all over the country before the pandemic hit.
