This Week In Baseball History

Jul 10, 2019

We have spent a lot of time over 107 previous episodes making fun of former Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, but this episode we really take the time to catalogue what made him such an exceptionally frustrating boss of baseball on the 48th anniversary of Kuhn reversing course and deciding that Negro Leaguers would be full members of the Hall of Fame. We talk about the unlikely hero who popularized the idea and the tumultuous process by which it finally became a reality. Plus, happy birthday to Bill Melton and Bob Bailor!
