Orioles' Jones Supports Kaepernick's Cause
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."
