Associate Professor of Politics Vanessa Tyson spoke to Time magazine about her reaction to Justin Turner’s decision to join the rest of his Dodgers teammates in an on-the-field World Series victory celebration, after having earlier been pulled from the game due to a positive COVID-19 test. “It went from my heart sinking with sympathy, of feeling, ‘this is awful,’ to seeing him on the field, and being incredulous,” she said. “It just led to a further roller coaster of emotions.”
