Baseball Team Bans High Fives to Avoid Disease Spread

Friday, 13 March 2015 04:50 PM

The Milwaukee Brewers will have to find a new way to celebrate for the next few spring training games.

The team has banned high fives to avoid the spread of pink eye.

Catcher Jonathan Lucroy and pitching coach Rick Kranitz became the latest victims Thursday. They will be staying home for 48 hours in hopes of stopping the spread of the annoying and highly contagious malady.

"We've been going through it for a while and it seems like a couple of more show up every day," manager Ron Roenicke said.

The team won't high five until the outbreak is over. The Brewers play the Mariners Friday afternoon.
