This Week In Baseball History

Jul 18, 2023

In their second installment from this year's SABR Convention in Chicago, Mike and Mike and Bill talked to a couple people you're familiar with if you've listened to the podcast. Dan Levitt (@dlevs1), co-author of Intentional Balk: Baseball's Thin Line Between Innovation and Cheating returns to talk about how owners and GMs consistently circumvented the rules to keep promising players from winding up on the rosters of other big league clubs in the early part of the 20th century. Then, Sports Reference's Director of Product and unofficial (and unpaid) TWIBHistory Research Assistant Adam Darowski (@baseballtwit) talks about the Negro Leagues Are Major Leagues initiative 2 years after it was announced and his own incredible research into the 25th Infantry Wreckers, the best team you've never heard of and the players from it that went on to make the Kansas City Monarchs legendary.
