For the first time since 1988, the Los Angeles Dodgers have won the US Baseball League again. But after the historic victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, everyone is only talking about Dodgers star Justin Turner and his behavior.

The man at third base was replaced during the decisive sixth game - because of a positive corona test. But after the final whistle, Turner returned to the field, shook hands, hugged and celebrated with the trophy. As you can see on the TV pictures, he was initially wearing a mask. But for the winning photo, he sat down between his teammates and removed the mouth and nose protection.

Major League Baseball (MLB) is now investigating the 35-year-old Dodgers professional, the league boss Rob Manfred's office announced on Wednesday. In a statement, the MLB said that Turner had been isolated "for the safety of those around him". But after the victory of his team, he disregarded the "agreed protocols and instructions". "Turner's decision to leave the isolation and enter the field was wrong and endangered everyone with whom he came in contact," it says there.

But he was pulled before the start of the eighth, with Enrique Hernandez going to second, Chris Taylor moving to left, and Edwin Rios playing third.There was no explanation for why Turner was removed until after the Dodgers won the World Series 3-1.

As reported by several US media, the players had been tested for the novel corona virus in the run-up to the sixth final game. Turner's positive test was received late in the game. It was not until the eighth inning that the Dodgers player was substituted. At first he had adhered to the quarantine imposed on him, tweeted: "Thanks to everyone who got in touch. I feel great, have no symptoms at all. I just went through every emotion you can imagine. Can't believe that I can't be out there to party with my boys. So proud of this team and incredibly happy for the city of LA. " Shortly afterwards he was seen in the field.

Dodgers President Andrew Friedman told reporters, according to CNN, "I don't think anyone could have stopped him from going out into the field." According to him, Turner was very careful and only approached people "with whom he had already been in contact". However, according to Friedman, he did not watch him all the time during the celebrations.
