‘I’m sorry neighbors’: Rangers’ Joey Gallo turns home into indoor batting cage during MLB’s hiatus

It’s a problem for many across North Texas. What is everyone supposed to do with all of their extra time around the house as the state attempts to slow the spread of the coronavirus?

Texas Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo found a pretty productive answer.

After Major League Baseball put spring training as well as its season on hold due to COVID-19, players became unable to use team facilities to stay ready for if or when the 2020 season actually begins.

In light of those circumstances, Gallo decided to turn his Dallas home into his own personal batting cage.

Could be worse- the neighbors upstairs appear to have taken up either clog dancing or furniture throwing, and I’m not sure which is more alarming…..
