Protective masks won’t be out of sight when big-league baseball resumes.

Some players and coaches are planning to wear them on the field.

Safety protocols require masks in clubhouses and close proximity indoors, but not on the field.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is encouraging people to wear masks after testing positive for the virus.

Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier plans to wear one during games, in part to set an example for those watching on television.

Atlanta third base coach Ron Washington also plans to wear one for health reasons. At age 68, he's in a high-risk group.
