Baltimore Orioles Star Adam Jones Says MLB Players Cannot Protest The National Anthem Because 'Baseball Is A White Man's Sport'

Filed under: BaseballMLBControversySocial Issues

Whether you agree with him or not, you have to respect the fact that he's speaking his mind.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones says MLB players don't protest the national anthem because "baseball is a White man's sport." In case you aren't familiar, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines when he sat during The Star-Spangled Banner.

Adam said:

"We already have two strikes against us already, so you might as well not kick yourself out of the game… In football, you can't kick them out. You need those players. In baseball, they don't need us."

Additionally, the 31-year-old would "never" sit during the national anthem out of respect for family members who served in the military.

However, the outfielder fully supports Kaepernick's decision to protest.

Tim Tebow is officially starting his career in professional baseball!

In case you didn't know, the former NFL quarterback decided to pull a Michael Jordan and try his luck at playing baseball recently — and apparently, the switchover is proving to be quite easy for the sports phenomenon.

That's because the New York Mets just signed the 29-year-old to a minor league contract to play for the team's Instructional League!

Get ready, Tim Tebow lovers — your boy is pulling a Michael Jordan!!

Jordan, of course, quit the NBA's Chicago Bulls for one year in the mid-1990s to pursue a professional baseball career, and even though he did pretty well on the diamond, his experiment was short-lived.

Well now, former NFL star Tebow wants much of the same for his career, now that he appears completely done with football — the QB is going after a baseball career and he's REALLY serious about it!

(Yeah, no, we know, it's not The Bachelor. Wouldn't he be amazing?! Sigh…)

But hey, a hunk in baseball pants?! Sign us up!!

According to Tebow's agent Jimmy Sexton, the athlete has been

What made him think this was a good idea?!

Unless you haven't been paying attention at all, you know there has been a ton of violence in our nation over the past couple months, so naturally emotions and tensions are high across the country — which means THINK BEFORE YOU TALK SING!

A Canadian singing group called The Tenors received some backlash on Tuesday at MLB's 87th All-Star Game after one of the performers's decided to wing his part of O Canada to include the saying "all lives matter." YIKES!

About 30 seconds into Canada's national anthem, Remigio Pereira decided to change the line from "With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free" to, "We're all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great."

Maybe Pereira didn't get the memo about #AllLivesMatter from Michael Jackson's son, or Michael B. Jordan's comments, or Justin Bieber's mom, or Mike Huckabee's RIDICULOUS examples. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out a clip of the anthem to see the ridiculous change as well as the group's apology (below)!

Cool Dad Flawlessly Catches Foul Ball At Baseball Game… While Carrying His Daughter & A Plate Of Food!

no title

This is beyond cute!

The Philadelphia Phillies had a tough day on Thursday, losing at home to the visiting Toronto Blue Jays 13-2, but while the MLB team wasn't showing out well on the field, one fan stole the show.

Brian Kucharik, a dad who brought his daughter to the game, is going viral right now after he caught a foul ball off the bat of the Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar… but it's how he did it that's catching everyone's eye!

Kucharik, sitting down the first base line, caught the ball one-handed — which is impressive enough considering how hard these balls get hit — but he also did it with his daughter Emily in his arms, AND while carrying a full plate of hot dogs and french fries!

Dayum, Brian!

Ch-ch-check out Brian doing his thing in real time and winding up with a nice souvenir (below)!!!

Fox Sports Reporter Gets Racist In Facebook Live Video, Says She 'Didn't Even Know Mexicans Were That Smart'

no title

How could this sportscaster possibly think this was a good idea??

Emily Austen is — or, was — a sideline reporter for MLB and NBA games on local TV in Florida for Fox Sports Florida, but her life is now turned completely upside down.

The broadcaster who covered the Tampa Bay Rays and Orlando Magic will NOT be appearing on Fox Sports any more after a racist, anti-Semitic, and generally bigoted video came to light on Thursday evening.

Austen joined a Facebook Live video shoot with a group of guys from a website called Barstool Sports, and in doing so proceeded to say some incredibly awful things as the entire cast wrapped up yesterday's sports events on camera.

On the 35-minute long broadcast — which was deleted very quickly from Facebook Live, but pulled off in time and posted to Vimeo for the world to see — Austen utters SO many insensitive jokes.

She goes off about
