Following an afternoon where Mets and Marlins players decided how to handle Thursday night's game, players from both teams took the field as scheduled at 7:10 p.m. before observing a 42-second moment of silence and walking off.
The game was postponed, and all that was left on the field was a Black Lives Matter t-shirt on home plate.
