Cody Bellinger’s PSA is here to promote proper safety and hygiene for all.

With summer camp taking place across the entire MLB, teams are starting to hit their stride as they warm up for the upcoming shortened season starting at the end of July. For the Dodgers, that starts with Cody Bellinger.

While the team itself is still looking to find its footing with the season coming up, LA star and 2019 NL MVP, Bellinger, is making sure that everyone is doing their part to stay safe and healthy. Americans are still walking on eggshells when it comes to taking the proper precautions to stay socially distant. For Bellinger, he is urging every baseball fan and everyone in the country to follow a couple of simple rules.

If this isn’t a perfect example of killing two birds with one stone, then we’re not sure what is. Not only is Bellinger following CDC guidelines by telling people to wear a mask, he is also letting fans know that brushing your teeth to avoid mask breath is critical. Look at that million-dollar smile of the league MVP. Everyone should strive for that kind of greatness.

While MLB players do not have to wear masks while in action during games, it is important that everyone follows the protocols laid out by the league for the 2020 season. One of these key rules is the fact that masks are required for non-playing staff while in the dugout and bullpen.

Everything about this year is new and experimental. As the times begin to change, the league is going to have to change with it. With Bellinger’s PSA urging everyone to wear a mask and keep their dental hygiene in check, the MLB’s shortened season with no fans in the stands looks like it could actually work.
