Whenever Major League Baseball returns, there will be a strict new set of rules designed to keep players and personnel safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Part of MLB's safety proposal to the players' union also includes a ban on high fives, hugs, licking fingers, and spitting.

During a radio interview, San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler said it will be a "tremendous challenge" to break those spitting habits when baseball returns.

"When you've been doing it your whole life, it's like breaking any habit. It's going to be hard when things get stressful not to default to the habit," Kapler said. "But I can tell you this: Everybody's going to be committed to doing it because it's so worth it. The trade-off between giving up that habit and getting to play baseball, we'll play baseball all day long."
