Oakland A's Coach Ryan Christenson Apologizes for…

Oakland A's Coach Ryan Christenson Apologizes for Anti-Semitic Gesture. Christenson, the team's bench coach, made an apparent "Nazi salute" after Oakland's 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers. In released footage, the 46-year-old laughs after closer Liam Hendriks put his arm down. Christenson then put his arm up again in a similar manner while laughing. The former MLB player soon issued an apology, saying what he did was "unacceptable.". In the world today of COVID, I adapted our elbow bump, which we do after wins, to create some distance with the players. My gesture unintentionally resulted in a racist and horrible salute that I do not believe in, Ryan Christenson, via statement. Toronto Blue Jays radio play-by-play announcer Mike Wilner has called for baseball to ban Christenson. Ryan Christenson should be thrown out of baseball for good, immediately. Good for Liam Hendriks for taking down his Nazi salute. Kidding or not, there is ZERO place for that, Mike Wilner, via Twitter
