UPDATE: this was a Phillies players decision
I'm told the Phillies' decision not to play tonight was made by players and not in concert with the Nationals players.— Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyNBCS) August 27, 2020
According to Jim Salisbury, the Phillies will not be taking the field tonight in protest of the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.
