Some people have the decency to hide the fact that they’re socialist, but Washington Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle is not one of them.

On Sunday, Doolittle joined a webinar hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) titled “Inside Baseball,” discussing “baseball, socialism, and the workers that make it happen” according to its Twitter page.

While this decision by Doolittle to advocate for the most consistently corrupt and inadequate form of economics in world history might be most people’s first insight into Doolitte’s political leanings, his past history shows that this decision is no anomaly or surprise.

Shortly after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Doolittle tweeted out a series of thoughts in which he called for more gun control. He was inspired by Washington Mystics guard Natasha Cloud, who also joined in the call for more change in this area.

It’s funny how the people that advocate for socialism are often the ones that make a strong living off the capitalistic structure that enables America to thrive. Doolittle currently makes $1.5 million per year with $2.1 million in incentives (for perspective, the average American made $51,480 in 2021). But hey, maybe this political and social guru knows something we don't (wink).

Shut up and pitch.
