Nationals display 'Black Lives Matter' on video board outside stadium

Nationals display 'Black Lives Matter' on video board outside stadium

The Nationals have displayed a new sign outside one of the entrances to their stadium, one that recognizes the racial inequality that is still prevalent in America in 2020.

On Monday, pictures surfaced of a large 'Black Lives Matter' sign on a video board outside of Nationals Park.

Under 'Black Lives Matter' was the Nationals' logo, as well as the word "unity."

Several players on the team have been outspoken about the racial injustices in America following the death of George Floyd on May 25, which sparked protests throughout the country demanding justice. The Nationals issued a team statement, encouraging "our fellow citizens to lead by example."

Earlier this month, less than four miles Northwest from Nationals Park, D.C. Mayor Murial Bowser created 'Black Lives Matter Plaza' on a part of 16th street leading up to the White House with a matching mural.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone complains about Phillies fans blowing airhorns outside stadium

Yankees manager Aaron Boone complains about Phillies fans blowing airhorns outside stadium

Phillies fans haven’t been allowed inside Citizens Bank Park to heckle opposing players this season, but they still found a way to draw the ire of New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

During Thursday night’s contest between the Phillies and Yankees, Boone pulled the umpires aside in between frames to complain about a group of fans outside the stadium blowing an airhorn during his team’s at-bats. The sound could be heard on the TV broadcast as Phillies starter Zach Eflin handled Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres in 1-2-3 fashion.

They’re apparently called the “Fandemic Crew” and have attending all Phillies home games to cheer them on. Word quickly reached the group that Boone wasn’t happy with their airhorn.

Considering the fans were outside the stadium, there really wasn’t much the umpires could do. It appears not even a pandemic is going to stop Phillies fans from making their presence known.

MLB announces schedule to make up Nationals-Marlins postponements

MLB announces schedule to make up Nationals-Marlins postponements

The Washington Nationals will make up their postponed three-game series with the Miami Marlins over multiple dates when the teams were previously scheduled to play.

Saturday, Aug. 22, the Nationals will be the home team in the first game of a doubleheader, then the road team in the second game. Doubleheaders now consist of two seven-inning games. That game will be a makeup for the July 31 game that was postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak within the Marlins organization which delayed a three-game series scheduled to be played in Miami on July 31-Aug. 2.

Friday, Sept. 18, in Miami will be another doubleheader. That accounts for the Aug. 1 postponement.

Sunday, Sept. 20 will be a final doubleheader to make up for the Aug. 2 postponement. It also means the Nationals will play five games in three days in Miami before the final week of the season begins.

The Nationals will play 12 games in 10 days to close the season.
