Major League Baseball says 70% of players, on-field staff and support personnel have been fully or partially vaccinated for the coronavirus.

Rob Manfred made the announcement during SporticoLive's online discussion of its estimates to baseball franchise valuations on Tuesday.

"I think we're around 70%. The clubs have worked really hard with their players," Manfred said. "We're continuing to press to try to get everybody up above that kind of 85[%] number that we think is so important."

MLB told players on March 29 that COVID-19 protocol restrictions would be relaxed when 85% of Tier 1 personnel are vaccinated.
