Ian Desmond is a baseball hero. You have to be pretty courageous to call out the whole “play the game the right way” thing as a white baseball culture construct. I also commend his decision partly because he feels a real responsibility to teach his kids and build community.

@BNightengale Judging by these tweets, Ian Desmond was right. Too man fans only care about African American players when they score runs, pitch a great game or give them fantasy points. Very few care about the lack of diversity in MLB management or what happens to Black men off the diamond.

This wonderful game of baseball can save lives, as well as bring people together during a time of sadness. You gained a new fan today Ian Desmond.

Priorities and perspective. What Ian Desmond plans to do with his life during this baseball season is far more important than MLB. This is beautiful and powerful.

I may hate the Rockies but I have the highest respect of Ian Desmond for that open letter about opting out and the racism and homophobia inside MLB.

“Another memory: My HS teammates chanting “White Power” b4 games. Two Black players on the team sitting in a stunned silence the white players didn’t seem to notice” — Ian Desmond

Ian Desmond is the most famous player to opt out so far. I wonder which big name All Star will opt out and cause everybody to rethink the whole thing. #MLB #Covid_19

This could be Desmond’s greatest moment and we’ve seen him do some incredible things in the game of baseball, but I’ve never been more impressed by him than in his honesty about why he will be opting out of the 2020 season. Some highlights from Ian Desmonds post ⬇️

Ian Desmond opted out of the baseball season and sounded more like what baseball needs as a commissioner than anything Manfred has ever said

Ian Desmond was the subject of many frustrating tweets during the last several baseball seasons. However, I have nothing but respect for his message and decision to be with his family. Tip of the cap, Desi. See you next year.

@emmabaccellieri Wow! Ian Desmond is truly a upstanding citizen!! I’m glad that he finally decided to come out and make this statement now. Couldn’t possibly be for attention or anything considering racism has been alive and well many years before this. Truly a great statement!!!

@nickgroke @Ken_Rosenthal Ian Desmond is a joke. We all remember him betting on himself in DC and then falling off the face of the baseball earth. He is opting out because he is embarrassed and washed up

Ian Desmond is opting out of playing in MLB this season. In addition to Covid-19 he cites the MLB’s rampant racism, sexism, homophobia, cheating scandals, and labor wars. Please go to his Instagram to read the whole thing because, whew, it is outstanding.
