Every player from the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals took a knee on Thursday night (July 23) ahead of Major League Baseball‘s season opener game in Washington, D.C.
The two teams knelt on the field and held a long black ribbon during a moment of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. While they knelt, a video made by The Players Alliance was played on the Jumbotron.
After the moment, the two teams stood for the national anthem.
Earlier in the day, President Trump was joined by young baseball players at the White House and he was seen throwing and catching the ball with some of the kids.
