If you just have 'em all take the field, then they leve the field and then they come back and play at like 8:10.

There were a number of athlete-driven protests in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday.

Van Wagenen issued a statement later Thursday night, saying it was actually Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon who proposed the walkout idea - and not Manfred.

Van Wagenen tried to explain himself in his apology Thursday. "At a leadership level, he doesn't get it".

With players lining the field in front of both dugouts, the Mets and Marlins removed their caps and bowed their heads in silence for 42 seconds before leaving the field. Finding a day to reschedule the game is a concern for the league, especially after a game between the two last Thursday had to be rescheduled following positive COVID-19 tests within the Mets. He just doesn't get it, ' Van Wagenen was heard saying of Manfred.

Van Wagenen went on to say that Manfred was "pushing" the teams to play (in a video tweeted by Rich MacLeod). "I have said both publicly and privately that I respect those decisions and support the need to address social injustice. Any suggestion to the contrary is wrong". A total of 10 Major League Baseball contests were postponed Wednesday and Thursday after players opted not to play in solidarity. 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.

Game off: All MLB games scheduled for Wednesday night were also postponed.

On Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks sparked a movement, which has now spanned across sports following the shooting of Blake, who is Black.
