Update from Cpl RFA – 3/26/2020

Greetings fellow Oakland A’s fans and AFR show followers.

I know many of us had been looking forward to what was supposed to be MLB’s 2020 Opening Day today and what would have been back to back shows for us last night & tonight before the Coronavirus put the breaks on that and many other things not just here in the states, but around the globe as well.

As of the time of this blog write up, myself & my fellow cast members have been lucky and have not developed any of the symptoms that have been tied to COVID-19. With that being said, I’m sure many of you have noticed my absence from social media since the weekend after our last show broadcast on March 12th. This has been because I want to focus my energy and efforts on keeping an eye on my parents & mother-in-law to make sure they are doing what is needed to be done in order to avoid catching the virus.

I know many out there are scared right now. Don’t be embarrassed to be, it is human nature to be afraid when something of this magnitude happens. Just make sure you are taking all the steps to ensure you, the ones you care about, and others do not contract COVID-19 and to follow all guidelines in place wherever you live to help curb the spread of it as well.

Bauce Man will be handling any posts that need to go up on our Facebook and Twitter pages for the time being until at least the Bay Area’s “Shelter In Place” is no longer in affect. Please also be wary of some out there who will try to use this time to spread rumors in regards to the new ballpark EIR. There is already one going around claiming the EIR is DOA to the city of Oakland, which is 100% not true at all based on talks I have had recently with members of the A’s Front Office.

Until next time, take care, stay safe and, as always, StAy OAklAnd my friends!
