MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues

"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was Tear before the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that players try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month. The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101

nineteen forty nine I was five from nineteen forty nine to nineteen sixty four every single year sixteen straight years the World Series either had the Yankees the dodges the giants and sometimes two of them so it was like it was in New York calling tickets like back then and I mean they had to be preachy packed and they are now yeah like ten Bucks for tickets yeah well yeah you said the bleachers

walk and then Mickey takes a swing powering fly ball deep to left that is court but just had she not high in the plane as Mickey mantle is his batting and Whitey Ford is pitching it was the single greatest you know I was just and that was the question is can I ask you a couple more quick questions for you Jerry new show coming up by the way judge I want to get to that I was gonna ask you what you've done in your career and your life and he had any other experiences like that where you say I don't think anything would match that but that where you met somebody special that you've always wanted to meet because of what you've done for living you been able to do some amazing the amazing yes to develop relationships while chip because of my politics said yeah as the mayor you in our metal the president's just because you do that in the business of your job engine credit like that so but I'll tell you the only person I've ever met that I got nervous about was I had an audience with pope John Paul the second and end well number one I am Jewish and then only Catholic people in Cincinnati and a whole bunch of them only now held this spring well you know yeah I'm in church every got the phone for the but it would because it started this organization in Cincinnati during the mid eighties called Cincinnati reaches out and you're not old enough to merit but in the eighties well in fact there was a song out of we are the world because Ethiopia and much of Africa was undergoing a drought in people were dying because there was no food and because no rain no food was growing but there was a was no medicine no sanitation so we went over to Ethiopia of two weeks at a time to bring over medicine because the people were dying of malaria yellow fever tuberculosis well the diseases that we had cured here in America fifty a hundred years ago and the pope heard the Vatican heard about our efforts to do this so they said on your next trip over to Ethiopia please stop over in Rome and the pope would like to bless your efforts so yes you know first you could say who is this really when you get a great in the battle of the court is saying yeah I think it's a prank and calling me really but it's obvious it turned out to that so we could run but you get when you go and meet the the pope you have to give me their day or two earlier right right are you sure you on the protocol it cetera and one of the things they said is now when you meet him he speaks this was booked jumble he speaks fifty seven languages or something she said so to speak slow enough that he gets immediately what language you're speaking speak loudly she was elderly so now it's my turn to go there in the end and beam and I actually was nervous and I realized I've been public my whole adult life why am I a nervous but but I was because this is a very holy man most people as it happened to be my religion but I sure sure totally respect for the I think most people would have made a

you said they reached out to you and what excites you about this new project in this new show coming up I'm loving it and it I'm not just saying it I mean I really do love it because first of all at

I made his major debut August fifth nineteen fifty four for the Brooklyn Dodgers did not play in the World Series. He wanna ring and was a member of the fifty five he pitched for the dodgers for two seasons than for the city athletic. That is a sixty five. And six decades. And he's still he's still involve farting still far. Farting like not not saying anything walking right by someone. Just, but so I so when I watched father and son talk about the history, and and I saw generational love for the dodgers. I grew to love the dodgers more just by watching a father talk about their memories of the team sports generations love it. My son sometim- says to me when I say he's like I want to root for the dodgers when they're playing the cardinals. I'm like you can't or go to your room or good for you for night.

But I said, please, you know, you whenever they're not playing the card set. But he's like dad, I grew up here. And I'm like, I can't argue with that. So I like, you know, it's easy to be a Red Sox fan now. Like the last twenty years, it's like the Bill Simmons in some way. It's a weird thing to think back about how quaint that was to say I can die now or we've been so as as Boston sports fans, we've been sitting in a culture of losing because what's happened since then has been.

But the Celtics were great, but then Len bias died, and then Reggie Lewis died and the and the Celtics the Celtics were just great. They were like a pillar of isolation in this fucking irradiated wasteland of horrible losses to the cardinals, by the way and the reds and the Mets in the Bruins making the playoffs twenty years in a row and losing magnificent fashion and just getting crunched in like, and so the Celtics where this where this thing that would just never fall this this castle that would never fall. And then it did. Yeah. And it was a brutal. We had to sit to Antoine Walker. And we had this the horrible to, you know, nineties where the build up to that of the decade of ninety eighty eighty eight two thousand into what you understand is you've taken a mentally ill person who should be on the streets and given the finest clothing with them in a cast out better.

Left at the bullshit that you laying out here and I gotta watch by language. Yes. If you don't mind, I'll chastise myself the Brooklyn Dodgers played it in Brooklyn. How do you know all this failure you there were, you know, but I studied the history of it and before the New York Yankees won so many championships because the Brooklyn Dodgers the Saint Louis cardinals, the Saint Louis Browns, they Detroit Tigers and they had that they couple of other like this. They Cincinnati barbers before they had to read the red legs. They had the barber's and before they had the Pittsburgh Pirates, they had the Pittsburgh pots or something like that. Pittsburgh earns. It was very embarrassing and. Which one in Pittsburgh Pittsburgh earns like funeral are like where you put and they played the Pittsburgh team had to play in the forest because the city just had didn't have any room for them. This was what was going on and Forbes field. All of these early ballparks didn't exist. I say they didn't exist timespan of we talking about here. We're talking about the very beginnings of the twentieth century, In the late. the late nineteenth century. All right. Well, the beginnings of major league baseball was nineteen. O one is that it that was when the American League was established and banned Johnson, who is the president? She decided she wanted to and she talked to her wife about this, and he said, this is a great idea ban. So she said, all right, and she was a big, big man. Ban Johnson is about two hundred and eighty pounds. She spoke cigars. She had a watch fob, and you know the coal nineteenth century get up and she'd sit around jaw jacket, nothing. And finally said, I think I'd like to be the owner of a major league baseball team, and someone said, where we'll that's gonna take money and she said, she's, you're, you're right, what am I gonna do about that? And they say, I guess you'll have to spend some and she said, okay. We're looking for oil. You want the story. The other teams tell us about how these teams are Pittsburgh played a forest. There wasn't any baseball. The only great ballpark was where the New York Yankees played. They played it a place called hilltop park in New York, and and people came out in the sun shining and they had hot dogs and root beer. All the other teams played in garbage dumps. They played in cleared out areas of the forest. Some of them were forced to play in the street literally because no one wanted them, you know, major league game was played in a street filled. Are you asking me the questions? You give me the answers. I mean, first of all, Margaret came on, I I came on, I tried to tell them, they mocked me, oh, marching my wife. We're not mocking your wife.

Happy anniversary, Jared, Goff on this day last year, Goth entertain the Thursday night football audience by throwing for two hundred ninety two yards and three touchdowns Tej the forty nine forty one thirty nine like Baker Mayfield GOP was the overall number one pick, but he waited a lot longer to play because his coach, Jeff Fisher had no particular faith in him, which is ridiculous it. Starting with that game, thirty touchdown, seven or sections answer twelve and four. Starting with that win over the Niners shabby. Happy trails to fifteen yards for the jets. The jets were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after Zia crew. Oh, well scored a touchdown. And then did this obviously of seem celebration with the football before throwing it into the stands. It seems like pro well carries a grudge against Cleveland where it's been his first four seasons. Frank actually suspended for that freak show with the ball. The NFL will let you do almost anything now, but you know, you can't remember Beckham pretending he was the dog ping. I can't have it. One airline grounds GM.

"They had just lost double header that Brooklyn Dodgers that that day July fourth. And I guess they had a game off a day off that next day. And then literally from July sixth through. I guess it was the early part of timber. The brakes put together a forty one game and twelve loss streak forty one and twelve in that period of time, right? Have having started at twenty six and forty and really became in contention until the week of the seventh and eighth of September where they actually beat the New York Giants to add three were the leading club at the time and moved into first place. I mean, and then you know, come September October. They were essentially on fire and is amazing turnaround, and you just wonder, you know, this now gets into sort of issues around baseball, right? So you get hot. You get lucky. You get team starts. Gelling starts playing well, you wonder, sort of what one of the things superstition. I mean, what sort of other sort of, I guess, intangibles you you, you wonder, sort of came into play to make them sort of coalesce into something that became somewhat of a confident of winning winning. A proposition on the field after having years in even the last two years of ownership, not being the case. Well, of course, the Braves, Nike fourteen where almost totally different team from the Braves of nineteen thirteen exceptions. So it was a made over team factor. Is that the giants? Of course, we're perennial power in the National League with managed by Monroe. The giants had an aging team in nineteen fourteen and well. These guys were on the downside of their careers, and in fact, the giants finish dead last the next year. So that was, you know, the way they faded in the last part season while the Braves just ran away with sort of a harbinger of how bad the giants we're gonna be in the next year and then McGraw had to rebuild that team which he did and then came back and won the dependent in nineteen seventeen. But the. Giants were. Everybody thought that they were the the stronger statement National League in nineteen fourteen. But it turns out they were not at all. They were not nearly as good as everybody thought they were. So. Before we move onto the rest of the season. You mentioned this quite this character rabbit Miranda. All right. So Walter, James, Vincent rabbit, quote, unquote, Miran Ville. Maybe a little bit of insight into Hammy seems like quite the character. I think he was kind of known as sort of a clown kind of character. Right? I've sort of a jokester if you will. He was there. Buddy also was a good solid ball player and had a long career. In in the National League. And of course. And later voted into the hall of fame by the veterans committee veterans committee. And I personally don't think that rabbit rabbit Miranda has any business the hall of fame anymore than a number of other people who are in the hall of fame do. But he, he was a very popular figure. One of the things he did was. Palm pop flies to shortstop area. He would make this basket catch instead reaching up for the ball. He would catch it at his his built, and that was very popular with the fans. You know, they, they left to see rabbit do the the basket, catch all around the National League. So he was just a. He was just a character, but a pretty good ball player, a good shortstop and. Around for a long time. He managed the pirates during one period of the nineteen twenties, and he was a good time manager. He enjoyed having a good time with his players more than he. Was interested in doing serious managing. Just he's one of those guys that we, you know, we, we don't have players like that anymore. Real characters. He was just that he was, you know, sort of like later on dizzy, dean, and Mark Federick, and some of the other characters who come along. But they don't come along anymore. Everybody is. Straight arrow and concentrating on his game and their introduce. Everybody says the same thing. And so that's part of of Morand villes appeal. He was just the guy that. You pay your money to see play because he was he put. You know, he, he gave you something to watch apart from just, you know, they weren't area baseball play. Well, I guess the fans showing up for for the team as well besides just him right?.

And there's this should be actually the best version of ownership. It should be a man who is in unique full control, having having purchased out most of his partners in the nineties and taking on the majority ownership of the team, and he should be this homegrown homespun guy.

That's the Brooklyn Dodgers, which is impossible. The Mets entire characteristic is born around underdog and his born around Eunice sort of unlikeliness and the Brooklyn Dodgers are or old baseball tradition. And I feel like the wilpon in particular have tried to make an effort to seem like a bigger than thou organization and routinely ultimately seems so much less than when whenever they tried to do this stuff, it is kind of weird because we think about bad owners ally the time truly. Owners who are bad in part because they don't spend enough to be competitive like the wilpon Stu, it's neglect and this isn't neglect. It feels like they love it, but in the way that like Lenny of from of mice and men loves the the rabbit or whatever. The thing is that he strangles you know that like they, they're, they're crushing it like they don't know that sometimes to just let it go is the the best thing to do as an owner? Yeah, I think about that a lot in terms of a lot of the deadline deal meddling that they did particularly Newmar Monae years, and it's interesting that Omar is kind of back as one of this three headed GM monster that the Mets have right now I don't. It's always hard to tell. There's always this sort of elusive on the edges reporting about Jeff wilpon in particular meddling with the team, and we never fully officially know how involved they are with that. But inevitably it just seems like you have a team like the one that they had this year. If that features some very strong from I'm pitching talent that features. A handful of promising prospects who need time to grow and we're obviously not ready and maybe a couple of people who are overestimated in their run, and they got tricked into thinking they were ready to compete. And so they went out and they gave big money deals to Jay. Bruce. They get big money deals to Todd Frazier, they give big money deals to Jason Vargas. Now, I mean, big money is kind of a, you know is relative in in these terms, but it is money that is committed to players that are thirty five years old that they probably just didn't need to do and are now either blocking young talent or our players with no long-term purpose on the team, especially as they imagine a rebuild and make this decision about whether they should be trading Jacob degrom, whether they should be trading, Noah Syndergaard. So it's just it's hard to know who is saying, make this choice. Do this thing was at sandy Alderson was that the wilpon family? Was it John Rico who's now been kind of stepping in since Alderson was diagnosed with a recurrence of his cancer..
