President Trump was met with boos, chants of "lock him up" and an impeachment protest when he attended Game 5 of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., Sunday. The crucial game was broadcast across the U.S.

The big picture: As Trump made a rare public appearance outside the White House and his own hotel in D.C., the crowd erupted into "sustained booing" that reached nearly 100 decibels when he and first lady Melania Trump were shown on the big screen at the baseball stadium, the Washington Post reports.

  • The president "appeared unmoved" as members of the sellout crowd also chanted "impeach Trump" after the public address system announcer confirmed the first couple's presence during a tribute to veterans, WashPost notes. "'Veterans for Impeachment" signs were also unfurled behind home plate.

Context: Polls suggest national support for an impeachment inquiry into Trump and his dealings with Ukraine is growing, and it's unsurprising that the president would get such a frosty reception in D.C. as it's a Democratic stronghold.

The Big Ten announced Tuesday that it has voted to postpone its 2020 fall sports season, including football, due to risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic, hoping instead to play in the spring.

Why it matters: The move from one of the most prominent conferences in college sports will almost certainly prompt other Power Five leagues to follow suit.

In a show of unity at the Democratic National Convention, 13 of Joe Biden's former 2020 challengers will appear via video to talk about the party's vision for the country and how they'll work with Biden to get it done.

Why it matters: Coalescing around Biden and his eventual running mate will help Democrats head into the general election against President Trump with a united front — unlike what they did in 2016.
