Astros Reach League Vaccine Threshold

Los Angeles Angels v Houston Astros

The Astros will no longer be required to wear a mask on the field after reaching the MLB's 85% COVID-19 vaccination threshold. Houston played its first game under relaxed health and safety protocols on Monday which means manager Dusty Baker could resume one of his favorite game day traditions, chewing a toothpick. The Astros are one of at least 12 clubs that has reached the threshold.
