JACKIE ROBINSON DAY.
Today is Jackie Robinson Day, so Happy Jackie Robinson Day. I don't really see why the color barrier talk still ruminates, but it does, and as it did I overheard the fellas over at WDAE radio here in Tampa talking about various teams and the number of African Americans on their rosters.
I thought there were a couple of interesting points (although, again I really think at this point in American society it doesn't really matter- we're past that (see Obama, Barrack). Regardless, here are those points:
- The Dodgers (ironically) lead the league with the most African American players.
- The Chowderheads in Boston have the least... Zero!
- The Rays aren't far ahead with only 2 (Crawford and Upton)
