Minor league baseball players must be vaccinated in 2022


Major League Baseball is finalizing a policy that would require all minorleagu­e players, including those assigned to Oklahoma City by the Los Angeles Dodgers, to be vaccinated before the 2022 season, according to Yahoo Sports. It'll be the latest in a series of vaccine mandates that MLB and teams have rolled out recently to cover more and more people within the baseball world.

The commission­er's office requires all employees to be vaccinated and some teams, starting with the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros, have done the same — mandating that all non-playing full-time employees get the vaccine or receive a medical or religious exemption.
