ACT: Protests Iraq War by silently staying in the dugout during the singing of "God Bless America."
COMPLEX SAYS: Delgado's passive form of protest had gone unnoticed by fans and some of his teammates until he voiced his opposition to the war in an interview with the Toronto Star. “It’s a very terrible thing that happened on September 11. It’s also a terrible thing that happened in Afghanistan and Iraq,” Delgado said. The Puerto Rico native continued by saying he feels sad for the family of those killed in the war but that "it's the stupidest war ever." On July 21, fans at Yankee stadium showed their disgust with Delgado (see photo above) while others showed signs of their support. Something we all can agree on: Though not his fault, Delgado's tenure with the Mets was during a time when the Messropolitans had some of their biggest fails.

“It’s a very terrible thing that happened on Sept. 11. It’s (also) a terrible thing that happened in Afghanistan and Iraq,” Delgado said
