    Before there was Colin Kaepernick sitting and kneeling during the national anthem, before there was backlash -- and backlash from the backlash -- and long before talk simmered of how Major League Baseball wouldn't provide the best forum for social protest, there was Toronto Blue Jays slugger Carlos Delgado, parked in the dugout during "God Bless America." Twelve years ago, Delgado quietly remained in the dugout while the song was played during the seventh inning of games as had become tradition across the league after 9/11. Delgado, speaking in an interview published by Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo D?a over the weekend, said he knows to some degree what Kaepernick is going through and that
