Former Texas Rangers great Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez in new COVID-19 PSA: ‘Wear Your Mask'

Rodriguez is latest well-known Texan to deliver message about health, safety protocols

AUSTIN, Texas – Former Texas Rangers great Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez has a message for fans and Texans in the fight against COVID-19.

Rodriguez, through the governor’s office, released a public service announcement Tuesday encouraging Texans to follow effective health and safety protocols, such as washing their hands, social distancing and wearing a mask.

“My whole entire career I’ve been using this mask. Now I want to ask you to wear your mask to keep our businesses safe for you,” Rodriguez said in the PSA.

Rodriguez is the fifth recognizable Texan to record a PSA for Gov. Greg Abbott’s office. Others have included University of Texas Longhorns football coach Tom Herman, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith, baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan and country music legend George Strait.

Abbott, himself, recorded the first PSA regarding COVID-19 safety protocols.
