MLB was the star of the sports world on Thursday night as the league became the latest professional sport to get underway.
Players for both the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals knelt along the foul lines holding a black ribbon during a moment of silence and then stood for the national anthem. It was a demonstration for racial unity that played out similarly in the second game of the night between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
The only player who didn’t kneel during either of the pregame ceremonies was Giants reliever Sam Coonrod.
