Unvaccinated Yankees, Mets players can’t play in home games under NYC mandate

The same vaccine mandate for New York City private sector employers that has made Kyrie Irving ineligible for Brooklyn Nets home games will also apply to unvaccinated New York Yankees and Mets players this upcoming season, per Stefan Bondy and Dennis Young of the New York Daily News.


Per that report, a city spokesperson “cautioned that mandates could shift with the state of the pandemic, but said that the city would not be carving out individual exceptions. The fact that the baseball teams play outside has no bearing on the mandate.”

As it currently stands, Yankees star outfielder Aaron Judge won’t be able to play in home games, per ESPN’s Jon Lee.

The Yankees released the following statement:

“On behalf of the Yankees, Randy Levine is working with City Hall and all other appropriate officials on this matter. We will have no further comment.”

The Mets declined comment.
