New York Yankees player Aaron Hicks (who was drafted by the Minnesota Twins) was ridiculed by Yankees fans because he decide not to play in Monday's game because he was distraught by the police killing of Daunte Wright.

There are people who understand that despite what happens in the world, life goes on. But, there are also people who have to take a step back and take a moment to gather themselves to cope with life.

New York Yankees baseball player Aaron Hicks is one of those people.

According to the New York Post, after hearing about the police killing of Daunte Wright in Minneapolis on Sunday, Hicks said he “just felt like it wasn’t right for me to play that game.”

“It was tough to read that somebody just got murdered,’’ Hicks said. “He was a father to his son. He’s also a son to his mother. It’s extremely tough when situations like that happen.”

Hicks had also made his professional Major League debut back in the 2013 season with the Minnesota Twins.
