U.S. baseball players take knee on Opening Day to pay tribute to Black Lives Matter

U.S. Major League Baseball began a shortened season with a game between the Washington Nationals and New York Yankees. 

Prior to the game every player and coach paid tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement by taking a knee and holding a long black ribbon before the game.  The initials BLM were also stamped on the pitcher’s mound. Dr. Anthony Fauci threw out the first pitch. 

This comes weeks after the start of the National Women’s Soccer League season, which began with players taking a knee during the national anthem of the United States.
