Julie Donaldson and I talk about Jackie Robinson’s legacy and the rather difficult topic of the decline of U.S.-born blacks playing major league baseball.
As we’ve noted in the past, It’s not an easy problem to diagnose, let alone to solve. Indeed, people can’t even agree on how many blacks played the game at one period of time vs. another. That said, Major League Baseball seems to be doing all it can do to address the matter, even if its power in this regard is limited.
