Re: Jackie's Heirs Haven't Learned
Like the article said, its just reflective of the interest of the black community in baseball. African Americans probably make up less than 8% of the NHL, NASCAR, and whatever they call pro soccer as well. Does anyone care about this?
I guess I'm just missing the point. There certainly aren't any barriers in place to AA's participation in any sport so whatever percentage they account for is essentially by choice. If the point of the article is that MLB isn't the overwhelming favorite American pastime it once was then again I ask, whats the point? I think most everyone knows this.
