You do realize there are a lot of steps between not attending a Rays game (which IMO was more just a friendly jab/joke at Rays fans) and "cowering in your bedroom". There's a lot more impact to this than death numbers. Lost productivity across all business sectors when people are either sick or quarantined and loss in profits for nearly all major corporations. You've already seen what it's done to the stock market. There's less confidence in markets and there's going to be a downturn in consumer spending. Tourism markets are going to suffer this summer if this thing sticks around. Certain business sectors (tourism, food service, etc) will probably see large amounts of job loss. I think the NCAA has to do what's best because if even one student athlete was to contract the coronavirus and pass away (maybe an unknown medical condition) then it's a horrible look for the NCAA and this is the safest way to play it. Not to mention the NBA and NHL have both suspended their seasons.So live your life in fear then.
