SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A Missouri State baseball player has tested positive for COVID-19, according to KOLR 10 sports reporter Matt Vereen.

The athlete will be quarantined for two weeks before being re-tested. The baseball player tested positive during Missouri State’s student-athlete re-entry protocol.

This baseball player did play in The Show-Me Collegiate Wood Bat Summer League but had not been on Missouri State’s campus prior to testing positive.

The walk on was not on the Bears spring roster, but still had to go through the re-entry protocol.

This is the first positive in about 100 covid-19 tests that have been administered since players started returning to campus on their own in June.

Missouri State says it proves the protocols are working.

The League tweeted a response saying this exposure was the initial exposure from earlier this week.

This is a developing story.
