Re: Torii Hunter seeks to make a difference
I saw the article posted elsewhere after I'd prepared mine. I do agree with whoever it was who noted that there are considerably more scholarships for college available for football and basketball and I think those two sports use college as their minor league systems.
I agree too that the Reds Kid Glove Games have been longstanding in their support of youth baseball. Heck, back in the day, it was the only way you were going to see Interleague Play, first with the Indians, then with the Tigers. I like the current system though because it gives a broader selection of games.
Of course, the more folks can do to resurrect youth baseball in the inner city the better it is for the sport.
