Yesterday, Oakland Atheltics catcher, Bruce Maxwell became the first player to take a knee during the National Anthem in a Major League Baseball uniform.
The A's issued a statement soon there after, claiming that they were an 'all-inclusive' ballclub, and that Maxwell's decision would be supported.
I'd like to take this time to say that EastSideDodgers is also an 'all-inclusive' place. Whether that be your skin color, gender, sexuality, religion etc. Hell, I'll even take some Lakers and Giants fans 😂. Because no matter the color of your skin or the things you believe, we're all still humans. That's how I see it... Now, back to your regularly scheduled "L.A. Sports" programming! 🏈⚾🏀

The Dodgers and Giants continued their series last night with Ryu getting the start against the Giants ace Madison Bumgarner. Ryu let one run in the first inning and was pitching well until being removed as a precaution on a comebacker. The Dodgers couldn't get much going against Bumgarner, Austin Barnes hit a solo home run but the Dodgers couldn't break though again and lose a close one 2-1.
Today's game will be the rubber match, Clayton Kershaw against Chris Stratton. Let's go Dodgers!
