MLB Star: Athletes Who Won’t Boycott Games Are ‘Cowards’

'We wanted to draw as much attention to the issues that really matter, especially racial injustice and systemic oppression...'

Los Angeles Dodgers Pitcher David Price, who is not playing this season because he fears COVID-19, said he’s “not an activist,” but the MLB players who won’t boycott games are cowards, Radio.com reported.

Price tweeted about his disdain for questions that he heard from fellow baseball players on Wednesday.

Price praised NBA players for their decision to boycott the playoffs. The Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic boycotted Game 5 on Wednesday, CNBC reported.

MLB players from six teams decided to boycott and postpone three games on Wednesday, ESPN reported.

The Cincinnati Reds and the Milwaukee Brewers, the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants all postponed their games.

“The players from the Brewers and Reds have decided to not play tonight’s baseball game. With our community and our nation in such pain, we wanted to draw as much attention to the issues that really matter, especially racial injustice and systemic oppression,” Milwaukee and Cincinnati players said in a joint statement at Miller Park.

Price thanked Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich for fighting for “someone other than yourself.”

The MLB will not punish the players.

Instead, the MLB said it will join players as an ally “in the fight to end racism and injustice.”
