The start of the season in Baseball: No concession to the President

In the first two games of the months-delayed American professional League MLB have also protested the Baseball team with Gestures against racism. On Thursday (local time) went to the players before the beginning of each almost closed, on one knee, and held a long black cloth band. Prior to the defeat of the defending champion Washington Nationals against the New York Yankees, the Baseball professionals stood up for the national anthem again. In Los Angeles, the duel of the Dodgers against the San Francisco Giants some of the players from both Teams knelt during the anthem in the ways of the Corona, with the crisis in empty stadiums.

Many players have had a also or two patches on the Sleeve. On a stand "Black lives Matter" (Black life), on the other "United for Change" (United for change). On the back of the throw hill a modified and-black Logo of the League was in the stadiums to see with the abbreviation BLM instead of the usual MLB.

Football-professional Colin Kaepernick had protested in 2016, with the knee during the anthem against racism and police violence against African-Americans. Since the death of George Floyd by a white police officer, there are country-wide protests against racism. Many of the athletes and their leagues have positioned themselves clearly.

The American President Donald Trump is a big critic of the Knieens during the anthem and most recently had announced to want to games, where this is not the case, not more. Before the first game between the Nationals and the Yankees Trump announced that he was going on 15. August, throw in a home game the Yankees the symbolic first Ball.

This honor was the start of the season, the Corona-experts Anthony Fauci given to become. The 79-year-old Director of the National Institute for infectious diseases was not a good figure, and missed the catcher by several meters.
