Major League Baseball has had six baseball games postponed since Wednesday to protest racial injustice including the shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred released a statement on all the postponements across baseball.
“Over the past two days, players on a number of Clubs have decided not to play games,” it read. “I have said both publicly and privately that I respect those decisions and support the need to address social injustice. I have not attempted in any way to prevent players from expressing themselves by not playing, nor have I suggested any alternative form of protest to any club personnel or any player. Any suggestion to the contrary is wrong.”
