Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo came up with a curveball to spice up the regular video conferences he has been holding with his Toronto coaches while baseball is shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic.buy nike nfl jerseys cheap
“We’re having so many Zoom conference calls and stuff, I changed it up a bit and we even did a ‘happy hour’ conference call so we can have fun with it,” Montoyo said Thursday.
Montoyo’s chat session led to another idea: a conference call exclusively for Blue Jays players to check in on each other and keep their spirits lifted during the shutdown. The first such call is expected to happen before the end of the week
“We had great momentum going into the season,” Montoyo said of his young team’s performance in Florida before baseball was put on pause. “Our culture was great, spring training was awesome, and we don’t want to stop that.“cheap nfl nike jerseys china
An optimist by nature, Montoyo remains focused on finding silver linings amid the confusion and anxiety created by this crisis.
“There’s a saying that when things go bad, there’s going to be something good that comes from it,” Montoyo said. “I don’t know if I made that up or it’s a saying, but I think I heard it before.”
