"Morning edition from NPR news. I'm Leila faldon. NMA Martinez. In cooperstown, New York yesterday, 7 players were inducted in the national baseball Hall of Fame. Number 34 David Ortiz. Jesus taking on a little bit of superhero. David Ortiz with another chance to win it. Tourette Sox fans were teased will always be known as big poppy. He's a three time World Series champion and he earned the distinction of being the only designated hitter to enter the hall in his first year of eligibility. Ortiz grew up in the Dominican Republic, and he was signed to play in the big leagues at just 17 years old. Here's how he summed up his success to NBC's Bob Costas. I got nothing to lose. I guess I realized at one point I was doing something that I know was going to put my family in a better situation, better lifestyle. I was all in. Ortiz was joined by fellow inductees, Tony oliva, Jim cott, mini minoso, Gil Hodges, but Fowler and buck O'Neal. Buck was a champion of the Negro leagues, the three time all star, the first black coach in Major League Baseball history and one of the game's great storytellers. In an interview from 1998 with David Letterman, O'Neill talked about the quality of play in the Negro leagues. The major league all stars were actually just making a payday, but we had to prove we were trying to prove to the world that they weren't superior because they were white. And we weren't in theory because we were black. We had a point to prove, so we were stretched that single into a double. That double into a triple, that triple into homework. Buck O'Neill was inducted into the Hall of Fame postures yesterday. He died in 2006 at the age of 94. Swedish

"Thank you very much for that. I had a front row seat for that. How you doing? Because I owned Carmelo Martinez. And when that ball was hit, and I'm watching it go towards bragging. I'm going, oh my God, if that goes over the beds, this is gonna get ugly. And you know, he reached up, he grabbed it and the rest is history, but I'm in the bullpen warming up and you know the bullpens where they were. Yes. They're right next to reveal. So, you know, having to sit there and watch that close and know that loot didn't bring me in to face Carmelo, that that made my heart sake a little bit, but I knew Randy after he got that out. He was fine. Yes. And indeed, they were and we know what happened in the 1990 World Series. I can't wait to see you again down the road soon sometimes soon either in Connecticut or if you come back this way to this neck of the Woods after the Bengals complete their remarkable playoff run. I'm going to tell you right now I'm not going to lie, govern the Bengals right now is something special, dibs. You really appreciate being in the city of Cincinnati, seeing how it's come alive for really, I know they went through great times in the last couple of decades, but didn't want to play off game. This is akin to what you guys went through in 1990. It's very, very similar. It is a special city to win in and I'm very happy for those fans. They've been starving for some football greatness and hopefully they can keep it going. That is rob dibble, the one and only rob devil, you can hear him three to 7 every afternoon, drive time on the rob double show on 97 9 ESPN and Hartford. You know, they have an antenna as he mentioned in southern Massachusetts so you can Springfield, right? You can hear them there. Yes. Greenfield. Just want to make sure I got it right..

"And I know this, it's not actually connected to Major League Baseball. No, it's not. And that's why when I glad you brought this up because when people say that he's banned from Major League Baseball, well, that has nothing to do with a national baseball Hall of Fame that's not officially connected with Major League Baseball, putting him in their hall has nothing to do with it whatsoever. Again, comes down to a ridiculous archaic, if I can say arcane, morality clause. And if you want to tell the story of baseball, professional baseball, which obviously Major League Baseball is maybe 95% of that, what have you. Then go ahead and include a description of their entire career good and bad and let it be and be done with this stupid hypocritical approach of not allowing certain players in and allowing other players in when the whole group of them have done something unsavory toward the sport. Let me just bring this up and I know people will be like, well, what does this have to do with the performance and drugs? What if Justin Verlander one day is up for the Hall of Fame? Are we going to bring up 2017 what they did with the Astros? Because that's where the egregious that's ever hit this game. Yet their World Series stands. They enjoy wearing these rings around a lot of them are really arrogant in the way that they talk about it. Like we did nothing wrong. So I kind of correlate that to some of these performance enhancing drug guys. They're fine. The records are still standing, which infuriates me. You know, you had a commissioner that could have balanced the book, so to speak. And didn't. And at the same time, now you're going to have Justin Verlander up for the Hall of Fame, one of his greatest years traded in the middle of that year. If they don't get Verlander, they don't win that championship. I truly believe that. And so now he's going to be he's going to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, yet they probably won't even bring that up. They'll be like, just like, you know what? To me, you can't throw history under the rug. You can't hide it. And, you know, having played in the era of and it's not just the steroids. It's not just the aged the amphetamines were worse. Worse. Trust me when I say this. And to make it seem like that didn't even happen. That to me just shows you the people don't know what they're talking about. So if you want the complete history, all of the and the amphetamines go back to the 40s and 50s. Absolutely. Even Hank Aaron acknowledged this when he was kind of rust his soul when he was alive. He acknowledged the fact that everybody was doing them. Yeah. And so for guys to be more focused, more alert, being able to run faster and work out and do whatever they're doing, you know, the use of a drug, you know, to me, it's like, just stop. Like, you just said, you know, stop put the morality, put the right people in there that belong in there because it still is a very difficult Hall of Fame to get into. You know, I'm still bitter about Ron Santo. He was putting posthumously. Buck O'Neal put in posthumously. There's a bunch of other guys that deserve to be in the whole thing. Listen, we haven't talked about mania Ramirez yet. We haven't talked about Gary Sheffield, Jimmy Ron and a rod shilling, all these guys belong to be in the Hall of Fame, but if you want to.

"Your decisions. Thank you. Don't envy you. All right, thanks to all of our guests for joining us today and thanks to you for listening. When we finished recording, doctor yerkovich said that probably my best bet is to try to separate the baseball and some of the off field activities that are unrelated to baseball. That would at least resolve some of this conflict, but in a way it would create some conflict too. I certainly see the merits of that approach. And I wouldn't blame anyone for pursuing it. And maybe I ultimately will decide to do something similar. But as of now, it's still sort of given me pause. I'm sorry we didn't get to talk to Gary Gillette on our first segment, but you can hear him with Sean and Ted on last week's episode of fan graphs audio, and maybe we can have him on some time to talk about other topics because he's been involved in many other preservation and restoration efforts. He has helped lead the restoration of the historic hamtramck stadium in Michigan, one of the few surviving sites where Negro leagues baseball was played. It was the home of the Detroit stars, and I believe it's reopening next spring. I'll link to some info on that on our show page. And I also wanted to shout out the work of another Negro leagues researcher named Eric shellac, who has done a lot of really complex work on developing major league equivalencies for Negro leagues players for those of you who aren't familiar with their Bill James creation and are usually applied to current minor leaguers, so you can say what are so and so is stats in double-A equivalent to in the majors? If that player had been promoted and Eric schleck has developed a method to do sort of the same thing for Negro leagues players to try to figure out if baseball had been integrated at the time, what might their stats have looked like? What were their careers have looked like? And I'll link to some resources for that too. Maybe we can talk to him sometime, but it's interesting stuff. Would cool papa bell have had 3366 hits with Josh Gibson, who of course only played through age 34 have had 435 homers, so it's translating that performance not only to different leagues and contexts and offensive environments, but also extrapolating over longer schedules, et cetera because as wonderful as it is to have seam heads and to have baseball reference and to be able to look up those numbers, what the players actually did in their official Negro leagues games, you still have to do some mental math to figure out, okay, seasons where this much shorter and maybe the offensive environment or the talent level was a little different in this way or that way. So it's an approximation, but it can be an eye opening one. You can support effectively wild on Patreon by.

"One of the things that the families has done, we have started our own alliance, which is called the Negro leagues, players, and families alliance. And so with that being said, you'll hear more of us working together as one voice. Promoting illegal leagues, promoting our descendants and just getting to more awareness of these great players. And I would say this where I turn with a tad, you know, you know, the pandemic, you know, we had a bad year in the pandemic. In 2020, but I think it also brought a lot of us together. There's a lot of people I have met I will never have met with this whole campaign process just going through the pandemic. A lot of things has changed during a pandemic, a lot of things has changed on the whole black lives matters movement. You know, some people feel as though that negotiations would not be going to Major League Baseball record books if it wasn't for the Black Lives Matter movement. And so the pandemic in 2020 was an interesting year. And we were going to try to capitalize on that and bring these all these guys to Ted, do you have anything to add to that? Well, yeah. We touched on, well, first of all, Sean's right on 42 for 21 is not going to be static. We're going to publish this list and then now here's where we do need to recruit others because I'm not a writer. Gary's an excellent writer. What little I've read is Sean, he can write. I'm not a writer. But Gary's intent is for us to publish monthly might be a little ambitious, but an article, of course, Ben, you certainly can submit, but we will be posting with an eye towards the hall, but not necessarily just the hall. So that's one aspect. But I wanted to comment about other improvements to the hall system that we can advocate and one as Sean was talking about the makeup of the voters. The whole their vet com typically has Hall of Famers, executives and writers. And God bless them all of them know their baseball, but the Negro leagues go back now 75 years. So if you watch them as a teenager, you're 93. You know, so there's really not too many people who have a great knowledge there. So I think it's important to bring back an expression. I don't like using, but a segregated committee, you know, segregated segregated to Negro league expertise and about segregated to Negro leaguers only. In order to get this job done right, these are players who were punished by segregation, and now they're punished by integration of a Hall of Fame ballot. And that shouldn't be allowed. There are 37 now players in the hall as Negro leaguers with Biden buck just joining that list. Of them, 33 of them went on from segregated ballots. Only buck and bud and rube and ray dandridge went in from integrated ballots. So I think that's another improvement that can be made to the current system as ugly a word as segregation is. I think it's necessary because of the history of the country, unfortunately, prior to 47 and continuing through this day. As you noted in the press release, you're not necessarily saying put all 42 people on your list in, although I guess you probably wouldn't object. But you also write there even if all of those 42 were to be added to the Hall of Fame it would still bring the percentage of black and Latino players from the segregated era to 34%, which is ten percentage points or 22% less than the 44% representation of black and Latino players in the integrated at era. So if you just go by the math, it seems like there is a lot of ground to make up there potentially. And of course, you did not have opportunities for a lot of black and with players to play during that era, at least at a high level in professional leagues. So I guess that makes it more difficult, but even so there's a long way from proportional representation there. And a lot of great candidates who are still outside the black room there. And as the press relief mentions, we're not looking for proportional representation 30% would be an improvement, of course. But I don't feel that there's what's the old remedy quota. I'm not looking for a quota system here because that would also limit the number of entries and I'm not so sure of 42 covers everyone. I just want to give a fair and just look at everyone in wherever it falls. It falls. Certainly 17% doesn't do the job. Well, we wish you both the best with your efforts and we will link to the press release and the list of players from the poll results. And of course, you can find out more about 42 for 21 at 42 for 21 dot org. You can also find the Josh Gibson foundation at Josh Gibson dot org. We have been speaking to Ted nor and Sean Gibson. Thanks very much, guys. Thank you. All right, we will take a quick break now, and when we come back, we will be joined by doctor Sally yerkovich of Columbia University. We'll tell us what the.

"There have been other life lessons to that effect. This has been a weird little intro for me, isn't it? We're leaving it all in. I don't know, guys. We're toward the end of the year. Very tired. I didn't expect to be tired admitted to summer. I don't know, anyway. So those ones rankle for me because, you know, especially with guys who are trying to sustain momentum or pick up momentum or really close and deserving and you know it has a negative impact on them when that stuff happens. So I don't know. I struggle with whether we take the whole thing too seriously or not seriously enough and depending on the day my answer can change because there are moments where I'm like, but you know like a person is waiting to find out if this great honor that they care about is going to be bestowed on them. You just send out a blank ballot, man like talking to that. And then there are other days where I'm like, we just need to unplug this discourse and plug it back in because it's so so serious it's going to collapse under its own weight. You know, here's an episode that's entirely about the Hall of Fame. Yes. And I don't want to be too self serious. You're right. No. But it's not an easy decision, but it's ultimately not like the highest stakes of anything in the world either. It's just high stakes when it comes to baseball, I guess. Yeah. And as I've said in the past, it matters. It matters a great deal to these players and to their families and to the fans who rooted for them. And so I think, you know, having some reverence for that is appropriate, even if we can kind of properly place it within the broad spectrum of things that we need to worry about in the world. This does matter to people, and so we should make sure to try to do right by it. So, yeah. And I would never send in a blank ballot. Either send in one with some names checked or not sent in one. Yeah. As I decide which of those things to do, I'm planning to make a little pilgrimage to cooperstown at some point before the end of the year when these ballots are due, because I haven't actually been there since I was a kid, and I don't really remember it all that well and it's changed a lot in the intervening years, of course. And I'm hoping that if I just stroll through the rooms and look at the plaques that maybe that will bring me some clarity. And I live in New York State, so I don't have to cross the country or anything to get there and I won't be too far away from it. Maybe in that week between Christmas and New Year's Day we'll go and take a little tour and see how I feel. And we can probably leave the ballot reactions alone for a little while. We will link to where you can find those things. They are very well chronicled and of course you can find Jeff's continuing coverage at fan graphs where I was amused that he just lumped in but Clemens showing and so into one giant post that would stay. It's like, just get this out of the way in just one go. Let's not string this out here if you want to read about these guys. Here they are. Yes, just the lump payment. So that's there if you want it. Yeah, Jay's thoughts on that little group are well documented and have been for over a decade. And some of it, I mean, is some of it sparing us having to run individual posts for some of the more noxious members of this class. I mean, like, sure, but also the real constraining factor was that because there were two era committees that met this year. There really was an actual crunch in terms of time because it is important to J to profile everyone on the ballot before ballots are due because I think that he does offer a perspective that voters find useful and he takes that responsibility seriously. So that was the 95% of it. And then 5% was that we have sure talked about that group enough. I mean, some members of it more than others to be clear. I don't think that everyone is quite as noxious as the rest, but all right. Well, let's get to our guess and we won't even take a break, let's just roll right into our first segment. We are joined now by two of the three people behind a new committee called 42 for 21, which is bringing attention to deserving Negro leagues and black baseball candidates for upcoming Hall of Fame at elections and trying to ensure that we won't have to wait too long for those elections to occur. One of our guests is Sean Gibson, the executive director of the Josh Gibson foundation, whom we had on last year to talk about his campaign to get the MVP award renamed after his great grandfather, Josh, Sean, welcome back. Thank you for having me, man. I'm glad to be back. And our second guest is longtime Negro leagues researcher and writer historian Ted nor the founder of sabers, Jerry maloy Negro league conference hello Ted. Good evening there, Megan and Ben. And we were supposed to be joined by Gary Gillette, who is also involved in the committee, but he had a power outage not long before this episode. So we will talk to Sean and Ted and guys if you could give us some info on how the committee came to be and what it stated aims are. We will link to some information and press releases that you've put out. But I don't know who wants to take this exactly. I think I'll take that. I'll go first and then Sean can jump in. We were inspired by Sean's yearlong effort to get the major league most valuable player aboard named renamed after his great grandfather and the experience that Sean brings for the past year is he's a very valuable of the three of us he's been beaten the bushes for a year. I bring a modicum of experience in Negro league history, and Gary is our Jack of all trades. He's, you know, an overall baseball expert and he's our political person, so I don't know how much help I'm gonna be..

"Been inducted yet and maybe have not even been on a ballot yet, and as things stand, they will have to wait at least ten years to be on a ballot in the 42 for 21 committee is trying to change that and to speed up those cycles, which is a worthy cause I think. So there are new wrinkles at least to the Hall of Fame conversation each time we talk about it. Yep, it's good to have new wrinkles and not just warts. Got dirks. The ballots, though, I haven't been paying the closest attention to the ballots that have been revealed and have been documented by rain Tibet and his team over at the Hall of Fame ballot tracker. But some of the ballots are bad. And I'm not going to single out any individual ballots because they get plenty of attention drawn to them. But I'm constantly struck just it's like every color of the rainbow like every possible ballot you could imagine. Because you would think that they would break down along certain lines and that you could do a taxonomy of Hall of Fame ballots and you could just say, okay, this person is clearly this kind of voter or that kind of voter, and you can tell if it's a small haul voter or a big hall voter or someone who cares about this or that. But sometimes they're just all over the place at least in my opinion where you look at it and it's like, where's the consistency here? You voted for this person and yet not that person and I'm trying to twist myself into some sort of logical not to figure out how that is actually consistent and I don't know that I am like most of the electorate here. I think compared to the average Hall of Fame voter or at least the average person who is eligible to vote for the hall because I haven't decided if I am a voter or not, I think I am more likely than average to pay attention to the advanced stats and war and jaws and to evaluate players through that lens. And less likely to give a lot of credence to the character clause when it comes to cheating and to PEDs and steroid use, but maybe more likely to give weight to the character clause when it comes to other off the field issues and bad behaviors. So I don't know that I map onto most of the voters, all that well, and yet even so it's like, okay, I'm trying to reverse engineer. I'm trying to follow your thought process here and often the people who vote will lay out their thought process at least to some extent in a column, which does not always make it any easier for me to follow. Yeah, again, like you, I don't think we need to call out particular ballots because I find that when people are engaged in attention seeking behavior that refusing to give them attention makes them. Absolutely crazy. So there's that part of it. But yes, I think that this ballot in particular seems to be giving people fits when they're trying to really tread some sort of ideologically consistent or logically consistent line in terms of their ballot makeup. So I don't envy you, Ben. I mean, I think it is a hard needle to thread. But yeah, some of them have been kind of wild. There have been some real wild submissions. So I guess our purposely wild as you're saying and they're effectively wild if your goal is to get attention for your ballot and to have lots of people quote tweeting you, then that has certainly happened. Yeah, when it is like not even like a protest vote, but just like a statement vote kind of I mean, I guess you're entitled to that, the point of having a big voting body is that every individual will have a different way of looking at these things and hopefully you get the wisdom of crowds at the end of it. And I think on the whole, the baseball writers have recently done a decent job at least from some perspectives. I think that there are certainly some ballots that would not look like my ballot if I cast a ballot and yet I get it and I completely understand it and respect it. If you're someone who is just going to completely write off the character clause and just or at least the portions of the character clause that I care more about maybe and just say this is a baseball museum and it's so mandated in purview and it should just be the best baseball players. I get that because I felt that way myself until fairly recently when I just had a hypothetical ballot and would imagine what I would do. It's only fairly recently that I and some others have sort of changed our thinking. And so if that is your thinking, then I completely understand it, and it probably even reflects most people who would care about the Hall of Fame's thinking or most people who would be visiting the Hall of Fame thinking, which is one thing that gives me pause, you know, if I were to exclude some of the best baseball players ever on the grounds of things that had nothing to do with baseball, is that actually serving the purpose of the institution or a baseball fans in general? I don't know, it's more just kind of a gut feeling, not sure that I am personally comfortable honoring or endorsing this person or promoting the celebration of this person basically. But I totally get it if you're just like, oh, this is one of the best baseball players ever. Obviously, why would you even have a Hall of Fame without that player? So that I understand. It's more, I guess, when it comes to the actual player evaluation, differences is where maybe I'm more mystified when you have these ballots where I guess it's often where Scott Rowland is kind of like the reaction to some ballots because there are players who are clearly at least in my mind not as accomplished as Scott Roland and then Scott Roland will be missing or other cases like that where I just think. I don't know, I don't get it. Well, and I think that the ones that enroll in is like a really great example of this. We have seen a couple of ballots that have only had one person on it. I think we've I think we've seen one blank ballot, am I right about that? I don't know. I've lost track. And those really are those are the ones where I you're right. Those voters are within their rights to cast a blank ballot, but it would just like put it in a drawer, man. Turn it in, because I've refused to believe that there isn't anyone on that belt who is Hall of Fame worthy. And if you turn in a blank, it counts as a no. Yes. So it has a real impact like the mechanics of every the Ben, it turns out that the mechanics of elections are really important for the end result. I don't know..
"cooperstown" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"About how are you? Under stimulated by this values at least do you remember some time ago some years ago I somewhat facetiously suggested that maybe all off season activity should be kept under wraps until pitchers and catchers report to spring training and just all together we would find out who went where and who's on what team now and it would be this glorious day where I'll just surprise to see where everyone signed in where everyone was traded. And that was a facetious suggestion, but I retract even that, I think having been faced with the equivalent of that even just for a couple of weeks here. I don't want to wish that on anyone certainly who has to cover baseball and figure out ways to do that. But anyone who just has their interest jog by baseball, I've been sort of fascinated in a gallows humor kind of way looking to see how people are filling their websites these days, including fan graphs you're doing a great job. Thank you. Everyone else. MLB dot com, of course, can not mention current players or has decided that it will not mention current players. And so I don't want to say they're scraping the barrel, but they're getting creative when it comes to their baseball coverage. And then there's a lot of here's what teams might do after the lockout ends, and where might this guy go? Yeah. What made this team do? Or I've seen people reporting old transactions that didn't happen, but almost did team X was interested in player way who they didn't end up acquiring, but they were interested in him and there were trade talks between the cubs and the Padres last year involving Eric Hosmer. I mean, I like hearing about trades that didn't come to fruition too, but it seems like in withdrawal for actual transactions. And so the substitute is either past transactions that were not completed or future hypothetical transactions that could be completed when transactions are occurring again. Yeah, you didn't enjoy Ben writing about the congressional baseball game using effectively why? Yeah. He mentioned the podcast in his first paragraph. I enjoyed it. I guess it wasn't really about the congressional baseball game. So much as it was about math. But yeah, it's a challenge, although, as I said on our last show, one of our recent shows, who knows one, anything happens anymore. We always have some off season lull, right? We've dealt with slow transaction winters before. But yes, this is a slightly new condition that we find ourselves in, and I think that everyone just let yourself be weird, you know, just like enjoy the strange of it all. These circumstances are suboptimal, admittedly, but, you know, get funky, go all the 2021 retro sheet data is out alcohol, dig in. Go have some fun with that. Yeah, please. Yeah, and then I know recently, the other Ben took a look back at that spending orgy that happens before the tap was cut off. And what he found was interesting, I think he found that essentially the spending when it comes to dollars per projected war was not wildly out of line with past years. It was wildly out of line with last year, which was itself wildly out of line with previous years, so last year no one was spending this year at least briefly. They were spending more or less like they had in prior years, although if you look at the lung arc over times there has not been a continued increase. But that was interesting because I think rap midford and his letter was like, look, everything is wonderful and spending with huge and there's clearly no problem with free agency. He didn't say all of those words, but he suggested as much. And what Ben found basically was that looked a little more like normal, but also normal has not actually changed in a wealth whereas in the past normal would keep climbing over time. Right, and I think and Ben was careful to make clear that we can't really arrive at a strong conclusion about this because the number of guys that are sort of in that middle class that we always lament these days. You can say that about any number of things couldn't we. But in baseball, you know, only like 19 of those guys who were sort of the lower end fill ins at every team needs every year and hundreds of them will end up signing over the course of the entire winter, but I think only 19 have so far. But in the early returns, it seems like the stratification between the stars earning big, big contracts and the middle class of players struggling to sort of not make ends meet, but sort of keep pace is continuing. So it'll be something that we obviously have to revisit again once we have more contract sign, but since we have the pause, we can kind of take a look at where things sit now and yeah, dollar spent is a metric. It is not the only metric and it's one that requires a bit more investigation and it turns out when you have a really, really good free agent class, those guys get money spent on them. Yeah. News at 11. Film at 11. I don't know what they do on the news anymore. They tiktoks at 11. Tiktoks. That's what we do now. Well, we just don't have news when it comes to Facebook now. We have lots of coaching reorganizations. Yeah. You're interested in who the new third base coach for this team or that team is this is just a great time for you. But otherwise, during this lull in transaction activity, what we do have is the Hall of Fame. What is this a Hall of Fame episode? Yes, yes it is. And we will not do nonstop Hall of Fame episodes, I promise, maybe some of you want that. Some of you probably don't, but we probably won't talk about the Hall of Fame again for a little while, but we wanted to devote this episode to two different Hall of Fame related segments. And in the second segment, we will be talking to doctor Sally your bitch who is a museum ethicist and this is not a profession. I knew about, which is just my fault. It was something I was not aware of until we had our recent conversation about the Hall of Fame and my deciding what to do with my ballot and whether to vote and how to vote. And someone I think tweeted at me afterward and said, well, you should talk to a museum ethicist. And I did not know that there were ethicists who specialized in museums. And so we will talk to doctor yerkovich, who is not a baseball specialist, although she has visited the Hall of Fame in the past and she'll tell us a little bit about how some of these issues that baseball Hall of Fame voters are wrestling with with the current ballot are also mirrored in some other museums these days. So nice to know that we have company at least as we try to figure all of this out and also in the first segment, we will be talking to Sean Gibson and Ted nor about a new committee called 42 for 21 that is working for greater recognition of Negro league players and black baseball players who have not.

A History of Women and the Olympics
"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing. Equestrian and croquet only golf and tennis. Had all women

Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron
"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

"Cooperstown Arguments are a little louder this year with no one elected. Here's our Bomani Jones. But if you're not gonna put those guys in, can you at least get around to putting in the greatest defensive center fielder of all time? Andrea Jones, like for whatever reason, while you're going here to doing this ridiculous stuff with those two guys. This dude's the best center fielder there ever was, and he hit 400 home runs, and we're having to convince you to even think about putting him in the Hall of Fame, which is to say none of you guys make any sense on any level on anything that you do with the Hall of Fame.

Embarrassed in front of the whole entire world, the worst fight he's ever had for $5 million, But he could have bought a youtuber kid for 50 million, So I think now they regret it. I don't even know if I would consider it like I want to fight with bigger, but it's just not as high peasant was before. I think he has to go get some wins under his belt, and then maybe I'll consider number one people in Green Bay. Red Farm says Come on, I wouldn't pay much attention to it. I think frustration, disappointment, hurt pain all were in that that sound bite. Look, there's no way the Packers would do anything to jeopardize losing Erin. You know, unless they're just chooses retire, which I would be shocked guys playing better now than he's ever played, and without him, you certainly wouldn't have been Even close to where you were yesterday, and I think the same way it will go for next year and it is it really the next few years if he chooses the plate.
