College Baseball ReactsFeatured
America is in turmoil, and many figures in the college baseball world have taken to social media to express their support for racial justice. Some coaches and players bluntly condemned the systemic racism and police brutality at the heart of the widespread protests and upheaval that have swept the country and the world. Some made impassioned pleas for empathy, unity and love.
We collected some of these posts below.

I’m still in disbelief on how this continues to happen. Black lives continue to be targeted. This is all about EQUALITY & RIGHTEOUSNESS. Humanity is what matters here and we need to understand that we are ALL equal and must treat each other with love and respect. #Unity #BeBetter

I know we’re all tired of social media at this point. But we can’t get tired of the conversations that have to happen. Read this. Or don’t. This is from Thursday when like many of you I couldn’t sleep. If just one person reads it and is reminded to love more, it’s worth it. pic.twitter.com/1vqbPL6UrM

The weapon may be formed, but it won’t prosper.
When the darkness falls, it won’t prevail.
Cause the God I serve knows only how to triumph.
My God will never fail.

Cool thing about coaching is often you find that your players help you grow as much and probably more than you help them. Thanks to @sclasssaj I became much wiser today. He’s 19 and I’m 49. So appreciative of the awesome dialogue. pic.twitter.com/IMwxqghtv5
