President Trump’s appearance Sunday night at Game 5 of the World Series drew loud boos and jeers when he was introduced to the crowd.
Pitch cameras showed two banners calling for the president’s impeachment by fans sitting in the second and third row of the stadium just to the left of home plate bearing the phrase “Veterans for impeachment” and a mobile short code owned by the group.

According to multiple reporters who attended the game, the audience erupted into thunderous boos when the president and his group of Republican allies appeared on the Jumbotron at the end of the third inning.
Chants of “Lock him up!” broke out in some sections, including one below where the president was sitting.
Loud, sustained boos for Trump at Nats Stadium when he was announced. Maybe loudest crowd cheer of the night.
