After the Dodgers wrapped up the World Series, Turner was seen on the field celebrating with his teammates. He even kissed his wife and posed maskless for pictures.

Why was Turner on the field to celebrate? Because he and the team insisted on it.
If they're cool with the risks, and obviously they are or they wouldn't be playing in the first place, then you really can't be outraged on their behalf.
Although I know some of you just can't help yourselves try your hardest to shut the fuck up.
