Baseball is back — with a bang, with dignity, with a national hero throwing the ceremonial pitch, with both teams taking a knee and a thumb straight in the eye of the most undeserving one.

Today, and every day, we come together as brothers. As equals, all with the same goal – to level the playing field. To change the injustices. Equality is not just a word. It’s our right!
Today we stand as men from 25 nations on 6 continents.
Today, we are one. pic.twitter.com/vKUGdRfwgQ
