It’s getting ugly and scary in Venezuela. People have taken to the streets leading to deadly clashes between protesters and police. Watching such things from the United States has to be difficult for Venezuelan players.

Omar Vizquel and the Tigers’ Venezuelan players tweeted out this pic in solidarity this morning:

Historically, not all Venezuelan players have fallen on the same side of the recent, prevalent political debates which we hear about in the United States. But now that violence is gripping their homeland, you have to figure that those differences seem secondary.
