USA Today – The Los Angeles Dodgers, who wondered at times whether Mookie Betts would even play a game for them before testing free agency, signed Betts to the richest contract in franchise history.

On Wednesday, the Dodgers and Betts announced that they reached an agreement on terms of a 12-year, $365 million contract with Mookie Betts.

Betts, 27, a four-time Gold Glove winner who won the AL MVP in 2018, rejected an extension before being traded by the Red Sox that would pay him $300-$325 million over 10 years.

The day after the Los Angeles Dodgers announced their historic deal with Betts, he kneeled during the National Anthem to fight “racial injustice.”

In 2016, Mookie Betts said he would never kneel for the National Anthem.

Pedro Moura, a writer who covers the Dodgers for Athletic, tweeted a reminder about a statement Mookie Betts made in 2016 that’s in stark contrast to his actions the day after the announcement that he’s signed the largest contract in franchise history with the Dodgers.

In 2016, Mookie Betts said he would never kneel during the national anthem because his father served in the Air Force.

He kneeled tonight in protest of racial injustice. He said he knows now that kneeling does not disrespect the military. “I wasn’t educated,” he said. “My fault.”

Now, after breaking a promise to honor his father’s service in the United States Air Force, Mookie is saying he isn’t sure if he will kneel again.

Mookie received well-deserved criticism by fans and non-fans alike for taking a knee in solidarity with those who suffer from “racial injustice.”

Conservative Alana Mastrangelo blasted the entire MLB organization for kneeling at the altar of a Marxist BLM movement, saying “these are truly disturbing times.”
