New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blasted the New York Yankees, accusing them of inviting “hatred to your pitcher’s mound” for allowing President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium next month.

De Blasio tweeted on Saturday:

“After CONDEMNING racism, the next step isn’t inviting it to your pitcher’s mound."

“To the execs that have aligned with hatred, you are on the wrong side of history and morality,” he added.

But the mayor praised Yankees and Washington Nationals players who knelt before the national anthem was played on Opening Day in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

Trump said he plans to throw out the first pitch when the Yankees take on de Blasio's favorite team — the Boston Red Sox, on Aug. 15.

Trump's mound visit will be the first he’s participating in the long-held presidential tradition.

“They say, ‘How’s the crowd gonna be?’ And you know, it’s like you don’t have a crowd, there was no such thing it’s gonna be interesting,” Trump predicted Thursday.

On Saturday, Neon Nettle reported San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod refused to bow to the Black Lives Matter agenda by taking a knee.

Coonrod was the only player who refused to take a knee before the national anthem, later explaining that he's aware of their BLM's leftist politics and Marxist leanings.

Also citing his Christian faith, Coonrod said he would never join his teammates in supplication to the far-left agenda because he “can’t kneel before anything besides God."

After the game, Coonrod also noted that he does not support many of the radical political goals of Black Lives Matter.

The pitcher added that he didn’t make his decision against kneeling until very near the game and also did not discuss his intentions with his team.

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said he supported Coonrod’s choice.

"The one thing that we said is we were going to let people express themselves,” Kapler said after the game.
