Pitch cameras showed two banners unfurled 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.

It wasn't initially clear if Trump, who left the game around 10 p.m., had seen the banner on the stadium's display board before departing. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment on the issue.
