The Milwaukee Brewers have decided not to play in Wednesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, according to multiple reports.

Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal was the first with the news, who says the Reds also decided, collectively, not to play.

This comes amidst a historic day in sports with the Milwaukee Bucks boycotting their NBA playoff game against the Orlando Magic.

Shortly later, in wake of the Bucks holdout, the NBA announced it has postponed all three of its games that were slated for tonight.

MLB has not commented or released a statement.
