San Francisco Giants Pitcher Sam Coonrod was the only player who stood the National Anthem during MLB’s Opening Day pre-game ceremony on Thursday but, thanks to the internet, he is no longer alone.

Coonrod’s bravery to stand for what he believes drew praise from many people online and, on Saturday evening, he picked up another big supporter: Actor Kevin Sorbo.

Sorbo, a conservative actor, vocalized support for the pitcher and similarly disagreed with the political agenda of Black Lives Matter—the group leading the movement against police brutality.

“I just can’t get on board on a couple of things I’ve read about Black Lives Matter, how they lean toward Marxism, and said some negative things about the nuclear family,” Coonrod said via Fox News, explaining his decision to stand for the anthem.

“I don’t think I’m better than anybody. I’m just a Christian,” he added. “I believe I can’t kneel before anything but God, Jesus Christ. I chose not to kneel. I feel if I did kneel I’d be a hypocrite. I don’t want to be a hypocrite.”

Sorbo shared a graphic of Coonrod and added: “Yep…it is right on their website. Just look at it.”
