Diamondbacks’ Nick Ahmed trying to make do with baseball on hold

Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed came across a photo from a recent professional baseball game in Asia. The picture was of a runner on first base, with the first baseman and the first-base coach also in the frame. All three were wearing masks.

“I’ll be up for anything at this point just to be able to play,” Ahmed said during a Zoom conference call with reporters on Tuesday afternoon. “If they said, hey, you can start games, whenever it is, May 15 or June 1, but you have to wear masks, if that’s the only thing holding us back, then, sure, guys would do it.”

Ahmed said his life already feels strange enough with baseball shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic – and the sport is only five days delayed from last week’s scheduled Opening Day. He couldn’t imagine how he would feel if the entire season were lost.

“Missing five days is nothing compared to missing 162 of them,” he said. “Hopefully that does not happen. Everyone is itching to play baseball and get back out there.”
