Aaron Boone does not expect that there would be a postponement on Friday when the Yankees and Mets begin the Subway Series.
The Yankees manager said his team will have a wider discussion of the strikes happening throughout sports in reaction to the Jacob Blake shooting by police in Wisconsin.
“I’m not expecting that. But I mean, again, when we get together as a team and have those discussions and see where we are 24 hours from now or 16 hours from now to have a better lay of the land and just hopefully get input from all our people in our organization,” Boone said on his weekly WFAN spot.
The Yankees and Braves were on the field when the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to play their NBA playoff game in protest of the police shooting of Blake in Kenosha, Wis. Boone said in the 30 minutes between games he was only made aware of what was happening when he ran in to do a media interview. He said there was no team discussion in the clubhouse before they went back out.
