During the national anthem of the 6-2 exhibition victory between San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics, Giants manager Gabe Kapler and several of his players knelt during the national anthem. The manager said he plans to use his platform to speak out against racial injustice. The first female coach in MLB history was also featured in the game with Alyssa Nakken at first base for the Giants.
