In a radio appearance on Friday cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo admitted he had chosen not to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Rizzo spoke to ESPN 1000’s David Kaplan and Jonathan Hood friday morning, saying it was a tough decision not to get vaccinated and “a lot went into it”.
“There’s so much more to everyone’s individual story,” Rizzo said. “It’s up to them, it’s up to their family. It’s a big decision for them and their family.
“It’s case by case and we have respectful discussions about it, just like we do with everything else that comes up over the course of the year.”
The Cubs are one of only eight teams to fail the 85 percent vaccination threshold for “Tier 1” personnel, allowing clubs to relax protocols, including easing mask-wearing and quarantine waivers for vaccinated players exposed to COVID -19, unless they show symptoms.

Several members of the Cubs organization have said in recent days that they do not expect to reach the threshold. Tier 1 includes players, coaches and support staff.
Cubs manager David Ross said on Friday that he respects the choices of Rizzo and others.
“That doesn’t change my view of Rizz,” Ross said. “He’s one of my best friends, he’s one of the great pieces of our team. We’ve made great progress this year with everyone’s decisions, not being alone.
“We are moving forward and respecting that and doing our best to try to follow protocols and keep the virus out of our locker room.”
