A show of solidarity by players is overshadowed by Mets leadership and a hot mic

"There's so much at stake.' And I said, 'Jeff, that is not happening", Van Wagenen said.

A Major League Baseball game between the New York Mets and the Miami Marlins has been postponed after both teams walked off the field to protest racial injustuce. In the video, the general manager suggested that Manfred had asked Mets owner Jeff Wilpon to hold a social justice demonstration prior to the first pitch, but play the game because a postponement would create scheduling issues during MLB's coronavirus-shortened season.

The Mets and Marlins briefly took the field, then, just after Lewis Brinson stepped into the batter's box, both teams stepped out of their dugouts and stood in unison for a 42-second moment of silence.

Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Smith's words were a wakeup call.

Both teams then returned to their clubhouses, leaving only the black T-shirt at home.

"That's Rob's instinct and Rob, at a leadership level, doesn't get it". Several NBA playoff games were postponed on Thursday, as well.

"Baseball's trying to come up with a solution for, "You know what would be super powerful" - three of us here, can't leave this room - 'You know what would be really great?" He just doesn't get it, ' Van Wagenen was heard saying of Manfred.

Van Wagenen goes on to say that the Mets are "not playing" Thursday night.

About an hour before they were scheduled to play an National Basketball Association playoff game against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, the Bucks went on strike and refused to take the court for Game 5 of their first-round series.

The Mets won the game 5 to 4, but Smith didn't play particularly well. I misunderstood that this was the Commissioner's idea. "I apologize to the Commissioner for my disrespectful comments and poor judgment in accurately describing the contents of this private conversation with Jeff Wilpon".

"Over the past two days, players on a number of Clubs have decided not to play games", Manfred said in a statement.

Blake, a 29-year-old black man, was tasered and shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday.

Other NBA teams quickly followed suit and the NBA announced it was postponing all of Wednesday's scheduled games.

Game off: All MLB games scheduled for Wednesday night were also postponed.
