It isn’t often that professional baseball players wade into the world of political protest, but Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Adrian Gonzalez did just that when his team played the Chicago Cubs earlier this year.
During a May series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, the Dodgers decided to use the Trump International Hotel and Tower as their base of operations during the series. The team ended up staying in the hotel, but Gonzalez opted not to.
“I didn’t stay there,” Gonzalez confirmed to media members on Sunday. “I had my reasons.”
