Fauci's appearance at the Mariners' game was a sign that the country is slowly returning to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic. The Mariners were able to play in front of a full capacity crowd for the first time since 2019.

Fauci's pitch was also a reminder of the importance of public health. The COVID-19 pandemic is still a threat, and it is important to continue to take precautions to protect yourself and others.
