@tigers and @Reds all take a knee during anthem. Bases bear #BlackLivesMatter logo. Activism can change hearts and minds.
Six batters in until @tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd records his first out. It’s going to be a long season, even with only 60 games.

If any Nats players kneel during the anthem tomorrow, we’ll see a lot of disingenuous reactions on here. Let’s unpack a couple. #OpeningDay 1/4
Reaction: “give the virtue signaling a rest!”
Reality: standing for the anthem is “virtue signaling” too. The real gripe is about losing unchallenged control of which virtues are allowed to be expressed on the field. 2/4
Reaction: “keep politics out of sports!”
Reality: Flyovers, the anthem, God Bless America (🤮), the constant messaging that war keeps us safe, police appreciation night...all political. The real gripe is with the political views being expressed, not the presence of politics. 3/4

73 envíos ha necesitado Félix Hernández para lanzar cinco innings en blanco frente a @Indians. Veremos si lo dejan salir para el sexto capítulo. Dijo temprano @GregJohnsMLB que hoy no haría más de 80 pitcheos. #MLB #OpeningDay
Hernández tuvo sólo tres aperturas en la pretemporada por el pelotazo que recibió el 26 de febrero. Por eso esos cinco innings parecen suficientes por hoy. #Mariners
Salió para el inicio del sexto.

Hey friends! It’s #openingday! I’m taking the day off work to catch the @Athletics today!

Last year I did a story for @ebyesterday about baseball history in #Oakland! (…)

Then I was invited to talk about it at @NerdNiteEB! Here’s the quick Twitter version.
The @Athletics and owner @DaveKaval have made a big push that the team is #RootedInOakland. After all, #Oakland is about to lose the @warriors and the @RAIDERS within a few years.
There’s more than just the @Athletics who play ball in #Oakland, however. If anyone is really in touch with local baseball roots, it’s the Oakland Colonels. They’re an amateur @BAVBB team playing under 1886 rules.
