Despite previous reports that the MLB would ban mascots during the coronavirus, shortened 2020 season, it looks as though that ban will only be applied to the field of play. Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer did some digging to find out.

Looks like our good friend the Phillie Phanatic will be the lone fan in the stands this season for the Phillies. While he won't be allowed to pursue his favorite activities like messing with opposing players, shooting hot dogs into the crowd and driving around his ATV, he will have all of Citizens Bank Park to himself during Phillies games.
