MLB players release video supporting Black Lives Matter movement


MLB players released a video in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on Monday. The players’ video ended with the phrase, “One team. One dream. Be the change.”

The video—which was tweeted by Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton—featured baseball’s leading Black stars, including Aaron Judge, Andrew McCutchen and Mookie Betts.

“We’ve been told that our pleas for peace were not made at the right time, at the right place, in the right way,” the players said in Monday’s video. “We’ve been told to ‘wait,’ but we remember when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. warned us that the word ‘wait,’ has almost always meant ‘never.’ We will wait no longer. We will make our voices louder. For all of us who can and for all of those who could not. 8:46 is enough time to lift a knee, to do what’s right, to do something, to say something, to acknowledge the pain of the Black community.”
