New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier will be wearing a mask this season and he doesn't care what you think about it.

"If wearing a mask upsets people, I'm not too worried about that one," Frazier said, according to Brendan Kuty of NJ.com.

"I got a lot of positive feedback. I got a lot of negative feedback," Frazier added, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "A lot of people have their own opinions, but the way that I'm trying to go about (it) is, it's my decision and our teammates need to stay safe. ...

"I got called a sheep by some people (on social media), but it's all good," Frazier said. "Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but with the situation that we're in, with how fragile this virus is for some people, I'm not really too worried about the negative feedback."

Earlier this week, the 25-year-old said that he plans to wear a mask on the field as often as possible this season. Frazier noted that he plans to be especially diligent in wearing a mask while hitting because of his close proximity to the opposing catcher and umpire.

Frazier hit .267/.317/.489 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs over 69 games last year. He will be in the mix for playing time in a crowded Yankees outfield that consists of Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, and potentially Miguel Andujar.
