Bat Skin. How about a statement by SDS

SDS

Back by popular demand, "We the People" bat skin is back.

That's great but....

Since SDS has thrown BLM around a lot on the splash page, how about a BLM bat skin?

Drop it in a free pack, and let people use it or not to voice their opinion.

SDS

I like this idea

SDS

No to activist skins.

SDS

Only setting things up for controversy.

They added a pride Icon this inning.

Too late.

Don't you mean discussion?

They've crossed that line already with the blackout page and days of quotes about change.

SDS

How soon before they start tearing down the statues in the game?

Gwynn in SD, Ruth in Camden, the entire outfield in Comerica...

The BLM bat skin is a great idea that I think would be embraced in the game.

SDS

I personally play games like this to sometimes escape the pressure of this crazy world outside my doors. I personally would rather log in and not have to deal with discussions and politics... I just want to play a game.

Couldn’t agree more!

Lol you have an issue with a BLM bat skin but not the thousands of MAGA teams and pro Trump teams? The line has been crossed already so that argument is weak as hell. Nobody is asking you to have a discussion about a bat skin. Shut up and play.

I respect your opinion 100%.

You have a choice to not use it. You'd have the choice to not redeem the pack. Just like the Jackie Robinson Foundation Bat.

I suspect that a "players weekend" event will likely still happen and a lot of players will use the platform to make statements.

I also agree with another poster above that there are many people using political logo's and team names already. I suspect that you could handle somebody using a bat skin.

Once again, the front page of the game has been covered with quotes and statements by SDS. Adding a bat skin allows them to move on with the business of baseball, but keeping the voices of people throughout the country, active in game in a small and respectful way.

Difference, of course, being that all those MAGA hats weren't created and distributed by SDS. Whereas any sort of bat skin or other unlockable would be.

I dont see how that would make a difference to somebody who claims that they "play the game to get away from politics." Regardless of who creates it, you see it and you can't escape it. You can feel free to stop playing if a company's stance on BLM bothers you though.

SDS

If SDS really wanted to make a statement with it, they'd make it only buyable with real world money, and all proceeds would go to BLM. Otherwise it's just pixels on a screen that do nothing to help the cause
