The Houston Astros and the Oakland A’s weren’t maintaining social distancing on Sunday.
Benches cleared in the bottom of the seventh inning after A’s outfielder Ramon Laureano charged the Astros dugout when he got hit by a pitch for the second time by pitcher Humberto Castellanos.

Apparently, a Houston Astros hitting coach Alex Cintron instigated the fight with Laureano.
I agree, this can’t happen in a pandemic. But an Astros COACH shouldn’t be the instigator. pic.twitter.com/4nSRWFe4Y0

The MLB is surely going to drop the hammer on both teams this week for fighting during a pandemic.
