Of course, we knew this was coming … the Rangers announced last month they would not put a limit on attendance for Opening Day against the Blue Jays — something President Joe Biden blasted the team for.
“I think it’s a mistake,” POTUS said to ESPN last week. “They should listen to Dr. Fauci, the scientists and the experts. But, I think it’s not responsible.”
The Rangers have said repeatedly Monday will be a one-time-only event … with team president of baseball operations Jon Daniels saying he believes there will be no more sell-outs following Monday’s action.

“I think after Opening Day, reality is we’re not going to be at full capacity, I doubt it,” Daniels said.
The Rangers have insisted they’ll enforce a mask policy — only allowing fans to drop the face coverings to eat or drink.
