Bruce Maxwell's Impact on Major League Baseball

Bruce Maxwell's Impact on Major League Baseball”

Maxwell's father served in the armed forces and the catcher became the first MLB player to participate in the protest of police brutality against African-Americans that has spread league-wide through the National Football League and National Basketball Association.

As for Bruce Maxwell, he returned to the plate with a standing ovation from the crowd.

However, Archer won't protest himself right now despite his opinion about the larger issues at hand because he has gotten "feedback" from his teammates that has lead him to believe it isn't the best thing for him to do "at this time". This act caused the Athletics to release a statement, which said "The Oakland A's pride ourselves on being inclusive. We respect and support all of our players' constitutional rights and freedom of expression". The president's action is something that helped Maxwell decide to kneel.

On Monday night, Oakland was once again the scene for a national anthem protest, but this time it was an entire group that came together. Said Archer: "The way he went about it was totally, I think, as respectful as possible, just letting everybody know that this doesn't have anything to do with the military, first and foremost, noting that he has family members that are in the military".

Entering Saturday the 26-year-old Maxwell has played in 71 games this season, batting.244 with three homers and 21 RBI.

Maxwell is the only Major League Baseball player who has taken up the cause, but manager Bog Melvin believes he'll be kept safe in a visiting ballpark.
