Gabe Kapler

San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Friday he will refuse to take the field for the national anthem in protest of government inaction on gun violence following Tuesday’s deadly shooting at an elementary school in Texas.

“I don’t plan on coming out for the anthem going forward until I feel better about the direction of our country,” Kapler said in Cincinnati ahead of the Giants’ series opener against the Reds. “I don’t expect it to move the needle necessarily, it’s just something that I feel strongly enough about to take that step.”

Kapler, a former professional baseball player who has managed the Giants since 2020, elaborated on his protest in a Friday blog post. He reflected on the sports world’s immediate reaction to an 18-year-old gunman killing 19 elementary school students and two teachers.
