Our Noticias, 7/30/20: Rounding up the latest on the COVID outbreak

And a major figure in the Marlins community passes away.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports
  • The owner of Marlins Triple-A affiliate, the Wichita Wind Surge, Lou Schwechheimer passed away Wednesday due to complications from COVID-19. He was 62, and after spending the majority of his life involved with minor-league baseball, will be greatly missed by those in baseball circles.
  • The league is currently performing contact tracing to determine if it will pay Marlins players for any canceled games. It has also issued a new round of precautions for travelling teams. Most notably, they will be joined by a “compliance officer” who will ensure that they follow the league’s social-distancing protocols.
