President Joe Biden calls no limit on fans at Texas Rangers' stadium 'not responsible'

President Joe Biden, speaking the night before major league ballparks re-open to fans throughout the country, stressed the importance of wearing masks and continuing to abide by health-and-safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19, calling it "a mistake" for the Texas Rangers to open their stadium at full capacity for Opening Day. Biden made his comments as part of an interview with ESPN's Sage Steele that will air on SportsCenter at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

The Rangers' Globe Life Field, which can seat 40,300, is the only Major League Baseball stadium that will allow 100% crowd capacity on Opening Day.
