The San Francisco Giants leaving the field ahead of an Aug. 26 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Milwaukee Bucks’ protest Wednesday that saw them sit out Game Five of their playoff series against the Orlando Magic in protest of the police shooting of Jacob Blake led to a lot of effects across the NBA world, from other teams declaring they’d also sit out to the league eventually deciding to postpone all of Wednesday’s games to Inside The NBA analyst Kenny Smith walking out in support of the players. And it’s led to impacts in other sports as well, including some notable ones in Major League Baseball.

The Milwaukee Brewers became the first MLB team to say they wouldn’t play Wednesday, and their opponent, the Cincinnati Reds, agreed to just postpone the game rather than take the forfeit win. Other teams soon followed in opting not to play: the Seattle Mariners, the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Giants (seen above leaving the field ahead of batting practice), and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Here are some details on those moves:

Update: And here’s MLB’s official statement on that postponement:

Here’s Dee Gordon of the Mariners on why they chose not to play:

Some other players opted out while their clubs continued to play. That list includes Jason Heyward of the Chicago Cubs and Matt Kemp of the Colorado Rockies:

We’ll see if there are impacts to MLB games beyond Wednesday.
