This Week In Baseball History

Feb 13, 2019

There were African-Americans playing baseball long before Rube Foster was born and long after he died, but none of them had as big an impact on the structure of the game in the black community. Mike and Bill trace the early history of the sport among black Americans before digging into Foster's life, and how he was uniquely positioned and driven to create the first successful professional league for black ballplayers. Plus, happy birthday to Ben Oglivie and an acknowledging head nod to Ugueth Urbina.
