The players then went on to stand for the National Anthem, limiting their political protest to the moment before its recital. They had been holding a black cloth of sorts, signalling their allegiance with the Black Lives Matter movement.
It appears Major League Baseball is now infected with left-wing political protests and displays, joining the other major American sports league in incessantly displaying a political message to the fans.
The baseball season only began its regular season on Thursday, following a lengthy suspension of the season on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Games are going to be played without fans, ensuring no in-person viewers were on hand to view the political protest at the baseball game.
