Angels manager Joe Maddon, 66 years old, is one of several in Major League Baseball who talked to Mike DiGiovanna at the LA Times about the risks of the sport reopening during the coronavirus pandemic.

Maddon told DiGiovanna he has tried to stay as healthy as possible:

He’s dropped from 208 to 193 pounds through dieting and exercise, riding his bike 10 to 15 miles a day. He’s upped his daily dose of vitamins. He’s getting enough sleep. A noted wine connoisseur, Maddon has cut back to one glass a week.

“I’ve been on a mission,” Maddon said. “I figured in order to make this work and feel good about it, I need to take care of me too. My tack is to work hard, eat well, exercise, get my rest and get myself in good shape. I took it to another level, and we’ll see how it plays out.”
