Report: Multiple MLB teams considering not playing Wednesday

Rob Manfred

Multiple Major League Baseball teams are considering not playing Wednesday night in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake.

The Milwaukee Brewers decided not to play Wednesday night against the Cincinnati Reds. The Brewers are joining the Milwaukee Bucks in protesting social injustice in light of the shooting, which took place in nearby Kenosha.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, several other teams are considering following suit and refusing to play.

This comes on the heels of the Bucks refusing to play their playoff game Wednesday. That move spread to two other games, with the NBA season now essentially on hold. Now, that form of protest has begun to spread through MLB.
