The Rockies’ Ian Desmond has opted out of the 2020 season, but that feels secondary to a heartfelt, incisive Instagram post about his place in the world and baseball’s as well. The whole post is here: https://t.co/rLnOu3CP2k. But the part I’ve attached is important and spot-on. @JeffPassan's photo on Ian Desmond

Former Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond just became the fourth player today to announce that he will not play this season. Desmond did so at the end of an Instagram post that touched on system racism and a lack of inclusion in baseball, among many other poignant thoughts.

Damn this is powerful. I’ve never shared a clubhouse with Ian Desmond but I’ve always had a ton of respect for him as a player and as a person - and for all his work with the Nats Youth Baseball Academy. Grateful for his voice and perspective. Respect. https://t.co/mikhFDTkA5 https://t.co/yxhbMxrDkT

"If baseball is America's pastime, maybe it's never been a more fitting one than now." "The golden rules of baseball--don't have fun, don't pimp home runs, don't play with character. Those are white rules." This from Ian Desmond is worth reading: https://t.co/WcBmns50Pp

I’ve covered a lot of athletes in a lot of sports. Few were as direct as Ian Desmond. He pulled no punches. Ever. Powerful statement. https://t.co/scDSsItB1V

Ian Desmond was always that player that would stand up after every game - win or lose - and answer every single question. I even had a few times where ID would pull me aside and say, ‘Byron, you good? You got everything you need?’ This rarely happens. Just one of a kind. #Nats

Ian Desmond is a baseball hero. You have to be pretty courageous to call out the whole “play the game the right way” thing as a white baseball culture construct. I also commend his decision partly because he feels a real responsibility to teach his kids and build community.

There’s so much about what Ian Desmond wrote that is worthwhile. What stays with me is that his observations on opportunity are applicable to so many industries beyond baseball. It certainly applies in journalism. https://t.co/bpYUGxV8mP

Weird to see MLB social accounts share Ian Desmond’s post and leave comments thanking him for sharing when so much of the post is calling out the severe shortcomings of the league.

Ian Desmond opting out of playing this MLB season citing among other things, racism (only 8% of players are black). Let’s do basketball next.
