BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said if some players opt not to play Thursday at Tampa Bay against the Rays in support of recent boycotts he’ll, “support whatever they want to do.”

The Milwaukee Bucks refused to play Wednesday their playoff game against the Orlando Magic in protest of the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, in Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee Brewers also refused to play their scheduled game against the Cincinnati Reds in protest.

Shams Charania, of The Athletic, reported that the Lakers and Clippers voted to cancel the rest of the season, and that LeBron James has left the meeting.

The Orioles are slated to play the Rays in Tampa Bay on Thursday at 6:40 p.m.

    Fans will as well, I support the players’ decisions to kneel during the anthem, not play at all, wear BLM gear or whatever. I’m an old white guy and I am sick and tired of unarmed black people being shot in the back or having their throats kneeled on (while handcuffed) until they die, black unarmed female EMT shot 8 times in her own home where there were no drugs & police sprayed more than 20 bullets, some fired from outside the home at they have no idea what, Accountability? none of the cops had body cameras running on this middle of the night no knock ill founded drug raid??? There is a long list and a badge is NOT a license to murder unarmed people who are no credible threat to the officer. It is clear this country needs police reform and a POTUS who will do that.
