During MLB games, the job of a team's official Twitter account is simple: Tweet how highlights for the big moments, gifs for the smaller ones and the final score at the end, win or lose.

The Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees opted to try something different.

Following the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers, the two teams announced they would forego their usual game coverage on social media on Thursday in favor of a series of facts about gun violence from nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety.

The Rays, who were also among the most vocal MLB teams in the aftermath of the George Floyd shooting, also announced they had made a $50,000 commitment to Everytown.

A small sampling of how that ended up playing out:
