Johnny Bench Said that he tested positive for the coronavirus and will not be able to attend the upcoming National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
The legend of the Cincinnati Redskins announced on social media on Friday that he is still fighting the virus despite being vaccinated.
The 73-year-old Johnny, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame himself, said that he regretted that he missed the opportunity to be introduced to Cooperstown in the latest Hall of Fame level.
The induction ceremony for the Baseball Hall of Fame is scheduled for Wednesday in New York… Johnny sounds very much looking forward to welcoming the class of 2020 graduates, including Derek Jett, Marvin Miller, Ted Simmons with Larry Walker.
Johnny said he was happy that he was vaccinated, otherwise his condition of infection might be worse… He said his doctor told him that if it were not for the COVID-19 vaccine, he might be hospitalized.
