The New York Yankees aren't going to let the coronavirus slow them down.

Despite MLB's announcement that players would be allowed to leave Spring Training, reliever Zack Britton said the team unanimously made the daring choice to stay put and continue their preseason tuneups.

If nothing else, it shows the cohesiveness and resilience of this team. No matter what the world throws their way, they're willing to stick things out by each other's sides. This is a group of players who care about the success of their team.

And they are a team not to be denied. Two times in the last three years, they've come ever so close to making it into the World Series only to have their hopes dashed in heartbreaking fashion, and they're looking to change that.

Even with the start of the season suspended, they're committed to training themselves up to be the best versions of themselves, so that when things do get back underway, they'll be ready to go.

Hopefully, they will stay safe and healthy and avoid any exposure to the coronavirus as they continue to train down at their facility in Tampa Bay. Above all else, that's clearly what's most important.
