MLB opening ceremonies recognize BLM and Dr. Anthony Fauci

CKTB - NEWS - Baseball COVID-19

Baseball is back and it was an opening ceremony like no other.

Nationals and Yankees players took a knee before the first game of the modified season in recognition of the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Dr Anthony Fauci, the man leading America's fight against COVID-19, threw the first pitch, but there were no fans to cheer him on.

Ultimately, the Yankees and Dodgers were able to claim the first two wins of the new season.

The action continues today with a full schedule of games, including the Jays taking on the Tampa Bay Rays at 6:40 p.m.
