Red Sox’s Michael Chavis Happy To Report He’s Driving Back To Boston

Here, in the alternate universe that is 2020, a Major League Baseball player is leaving Florida and headed to Massachusetts for spring training.

But he couldn’t be happier to be shipping up to Boston.

Boston Red Sox infielder Michael Chavis on Friday tweeted out that he’s en route from the Fort Myers, Fla., area to Fenway Park, with a 20 hour and 54 minute drive ahead of him. Still, he seems excited.

“IT DONT MATTAH BECAUSE WE’RE PLAYIN BASEBALL!!!!,” the 24-year-old infielder wrote, accompanied by a screenshot of his iPhone’s navigation.

Hopefully, Chavis is healthy coming from the Sunshine State, where spiking numbers of new COVID-19 cases of late have forced teams to hold training camps in their home facilities.

Players reportedly must arrive by July 1, with Opening Day rumored to be July 23 for a 60-game season.
