Sports teams are taking MAJOR stances with Black Lives Matter.
Earlier today we reported NBA playoff games are canceled after the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted today’s game. MLB’s Milwaukee Brewers is following in the same footsteps and their opponent in tonight’s game, The Red’s, decided to not play either.
USA Today reports The Red’s manager said,
“I think it’s a tremendous stand,” Brewers pitcher Josh Hader said of the Bucks’ decision. “This is more about sports.”
“It’s something we need to continue to talk about. We can’t just stay quiet.”
“There’s clearly things that are going on that are so much more important than what we’re doing,” Reds manager David Bell said earlier Wednesday. “My heart goes out to everyone affected – we’re all affected by it.”
