Baltimore Orioles star outfielder Adam Jones is defending San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest of the National Anthem. Jones tells "USA Today" the reason there hasn't been a protest in baseball is because it's "a white man's sport." Only eight-percent of major league players are black, compared to 68-percent in the NFL. Jones believes a protest would not be supported in baseball, due to a lack of strength in numbers.
Kaepernick and other football players have sat or taken a knee during the "Star Spangled Banner" to make a stance against racial issues and police brutality in the U.S. Jones says no one has knelt, yet.
He reiterated the "key word here: Yet."
