OAKLAND — Within the wake President Donald Trump’s current feedback about how skilled athletes who refuse to face for the anthem must be fired, Bruce Maxwell determined to make a press release on the sector.
The A’s catcher went down on a knee for the nationwide anthem together with his hand positioned over his coronary heart earlier than Saturday’s recreation towards the Texas Rangers. Maxwell is the primary MLB participant to take action, and he tweeted out earlier within the day that he wouldn’t be stunned to see extra gamers do it quickly.
Don’t be stunned in the event you begin seeing athletes kneeling in different sports activities now!! Feedback like that coming from our president. WOW! ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽
