Major League Baseball is mandating COVID-19 vaccines for all non-playing personnel in order to gain access to restricted areas during the playoffs, including the field of play, sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Managers, coaches, and team trainers are among those who will be affected.

Team staffers who are currently unvaccinated can keep their access by receiving one dose before Oct. 4 - the day after the regular season - and scheduling their second dose, Rosenthal reports.
