Biden Calls Satchel Paige 'The Great Negro' in Latest Gaffe and Liberal Media Defends Him

"Think with the media would do if Donald Trump called a black man a Negro. Violating federal law incidentally, I mean, Obama signed a law in May of 2016 banning the word. We don't use the word Negro anymore, but obviously Joe Biden does. And what the media did to provide him cover is so comical. That it bears pointing out if you probably have heard it by now. There's a lot to get to today. It's Friday. We had a busy week. We're going to head into a busy weekend. This is a big breaking news day. You're not going to want to miss a second of today's Mike Gallagher's show 'cause we have a lot of great stuff planned for you. The Kyle rittenhouse trial is going to wind down early next week as it goes to the jury. There's only one reason that this jury would convict him. And we all know what that reason would be. We'll get to that in just a moment, but first in context, here's the 46th president of the United States on Veterans Day. You know, I've adopted the attitude of the great Negro at the time picture in the Negro leagues went on to become a great pitcher in the pros and Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was satchel page. Now, we could probably assume he meant to say the great Negro league pitcher, maybe when he said that Barack Obama was clean, he didn't mean to say, like he was clean like he bathed, maybe he meant to say, has a clean record. When he said that you can go into any 7 11 and hear everybody talking with an Indian accent, maybe he didn't really mean Indian accent. I mean, you could give him a lot of, you know, cover, right? Because that's what the left does. When he said, you know, those Republicans want to put y'all back in chains. Maybe he didn't mean like literal chains, maybe even those little paper chains that our kids did in kindergarten. Because honest to goodness, the media sprung into action yesterday to defend

He does Big Mouth down he talks right, right. He talks smack. He'd yell at you on the field. I'm going to put you on your ass, right? That's how he played he was that colorful fans loved him. Yeah. I mean, he was the big draw and black baseball. He quit every team. They they tried to borrow him. That didn't work. He he started his own team. You know what I mean? Like, he just didn't matter.

"Yep had a very famous pitcher named Christy Mathewson, and he was very different than the ball players wage because they all chewed tobacco and and more slots on the road and Christy was a Christian and all he would play Checkers in the clubhouse in Bridge. Yes, and he went to Bucknell. So he had a choice of a college education. He was also tall and great-looking in Anglo. Okay, so he was six foot three in those days. I mean, you know, and they called him the Christian gentlemen, he's most famous pitch perfect perfect control. It was a really superb picture was called this the Fate away which now we will call screwball you hold it like that and when you let go of it with your right hand you spinning it, so it's breaking in on a right-handed batter. So it's a trade-off. Pets right purportedly right McGraw who was fraternize with Rube Foster brought Rube Foster over from the Negro Leagues to show Christy how to perfect it because rebirth was a super picture as was his right, right. And so they were stealing styled. They were McGraw style was very much an eerily style Bund Bund Bund steal steal steal run run run a million signatures a million a big fake-out cheeks trying to gain the game the refs that they were, you know push-ups as far as they could go, right? So that's the weekends and then Charleston was a terrific Fielder. He played a very shallow center field right behind second. So balls hit over his head he would chase down like he'd run under them like break the Willie Mays football thing kind of okay, you've purposely played right behind the in detail, which allows you to make plays in the infield on balls that are hit just over the second base, right but also very few planes. Forget it. Closed. Secondly, he was physically very strong. He supposedly could take a baseball and ripped the cover off it with his hands and I don't know if you've ever held a baseball but it's pretty tightly bound. Right? Yeah pictures loved it when he played first because he threw the ball around after every out right when she still did you see them always in baseball the the ball goes around the infield home and comes back to the like in Little League. They get put in the big leagues. They still do it. They not the catcher throws the ball and then they all whip it around and then the kids back in the old days when you can spit on the ball and chain aggression tobacco, and they all right everybody lives. And so when they Charles don't play first he Like listen to seems so then when you lose in the seems you got a sphere a baseball. This fear can't point of pitching is to deflect hitting a whole point of hitting is too defensively perfect to play and get right. So soon as the Spheres has a seam lifted on it. It just no longer applies in a correct. It attains all sorts of weirdness. So that's why guys cheat sheet and pull teams up and spit and put tax on it and all this to KY Jelly. Yep. So the Negro Leagues never outlawed any of that shit. So the pictures were doctoring the ball the whole bunch. So I went to the big leagues were like what we get a new ball every batter and the guys.

"You know that nonsense. Yeah. So yeah, Willie Mays came along about four years later and he was Swift as a bird. He could hawk in the field right this famous film of all, he made his him turning his back on the ball in the World Series. Yeah running it down football style catches your boat on your shoulder and then flips around and throws the ball back in and is Pat flies off and that's the most famous footage of Willie Mays. It's from 9:54. So he he was exhilarating now when I was little he was still playing he played in The Negro Leagues to the Birmingham black Barons. Okay, and this you'll love this there were young Birmingham James and birmingham's a hotbed of baseball. I was was all of Alabama but black teams often named themselves after the white team's of the town. So Not only was there a white crackers team in Alabama was a team called the black crackers, which is the greatest greatest cultural appropriation. Exactly hear Willie Mays was exhilarating right? He he lost his cap wage. Ram she caught the ball like this. He didn't catch the ball like this. Everybody catches the ball with their Global. Yeah, he caught it basket style like that. Boom. Okay, so he could he had six hundred and sixty home runs. He led the league. In fact, he played the game like a negro Leaguer. Let's put it that way. He really doesn't think about going from first to second you're thinking about going from first to Third on a ground ball to the right side right back. Okay, you're okay off when that balls hit you are swinging and shit that's over your head. You are fucking every tactical Advantage you're trying to outthink the other team is that was what needra league baseball was. I was the stinking baseball league. They just Base to Base like in the big leagues Babe Ruth changed the game and the team's guys stole a lot and bunted and ran by the way. I'm risking long. He's hitting so many homers that everybody just like let's just hit homers. Okay, sugar leads the Negro Leagues and white Oscar Charleston is so great. The Negro Leagues didn't play like that so long You're talking about I'm putting a famous negro league play and then if I would Foster was called the button run, right? So I got a guy on first my job is to put the ball down the third-base line on the ground woke up with a buddy. Right? Right. So yeah, so the third baseman has to come in now, my guy on first is already taken off before the pitchers throw. So now he's almost a second. So now the third business to come in and seal the bulb try to make a player first or stay back on the ball and let the catcher try to do it either way my guys going from first to Third on this and I might go to second when they try to make the play-offs right when he's coming home. So you're really trying to force the game all the time right to go around and run around it feels like it's more of a team game than a than a star game, you know, like like to Hang Seng X rules and if you can trick people, you know, like sort of its it seems more of a it seems trickier. All right is way more strategy dead. Yeah, the strategies was more complex because and it was stolen by the major leagues like I say up until Ruth the major leagues played a version of the block game that they learned about by watching, you know, they mingled and yeah McGraw who I told you about earlier..

"And then you could argue that and I played for three months with the Indianapolis clowns before he came up which is 1 a.m. To black people from Alabama had that point in their Sports career. Okay, I didn't get to go to a big fucking college or something. You know, you didn't go you can get a scholarship to m a s u or some to Catholic school, right? So the the scouts could see you so the sky They get they had to beat the bushes as they say and one of the things the scouts did was once Jackie got signed the interest in black players as you might imagine Rose quite quite often. And so they started looking for them. So literally everyone who got into the big leagues for the next five ten years after Jackie was a superstar. Like there are very few mediocre black players from the birth and fifties right game. Do you want to be Willie Mays Henry Aaron, you know, you've heard of all of the black players, right? It was so was now but off and so in nineteen forty-seven is is what they say is the end of it, but it was there were still black teams playing all over the country. They Barn stormed. I don't think that clowns and broke up till 60 there were still itinerant black teams playing all over the country for different people. Okay that carried on and so there's a whole generation of black players that played in the forties and fifties in the, New Jersey. And I have a book about them here called The Negro Leagues Revisited which the world history oral history. I went around and interviewed all of them and they played some of them went on to play minor league or major life and white leagues, right but all of these players and a couple of women played in The Negro Leagues.

And so the king Panthers teams and stock them built ballparks pay the players and then one guy in Pittsburgh had his own bar that he ran the whole operation out of it was called the green dead. The Crawford Grill. Okay, and that's a good team was called the crawfords or the cross if you're down and his name was Gus Greenlee and he was a well-funded gangster and the Gang that they did was numbers running and numbers running is an Arcane thing now, but in those days there's a big deal you'd get a nickel or a penny. I'm not kidding pennies write a series of numbers that would be rid of like in stock market. And therefore the loop was brought back to the Crawford Grill and counted upstairs. Okay bags of coins bags of grapes pre-registered Freddy's off. Yeah, you know hard when she was a kid the famous singer and actress counting down toward and later of course became a singer downstairs and then went to Hollywood and how did you Gana Cruise a superstar?

"Had star players at this era what we're talking about the the latter half of the nineteenth century and wage because of right after the Civil War because of the Thirteenth Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments black men attained in a measure of autonomy and so much they were allowed to own things and vote, right? So of course not all had to come crashing down and eighteen Seventy-Six when they tried to do what they tried to do the other day at the Capitol, right? Right, right the election away from Hays who was going to keep grants policy wage and they I mean children and they gave it to Hays right clearly racist. So then they were able to start Jim Crow. But this is where my point is going. There were black professional players playing in white professional leagues in the 18000s. No one talks about it. It's not something that people talk about a lot but it really did happen and right after this, this is 18 6526. This is off the 1880s is when to see professional baseball doesn't really get off the ground until oh until the eighties. Well, they were playing it in the eighteen forties and fifties, but the League's began in the eighteen seventy. So then there became minor leagues to help Supply the major leagues, right? Right, the the might the national league started in 1876. Okay, American League in 1900, but there was a bunch of other leagues in the nineteenth Century so long In those professional leagues including one which was called the union Association a black man played and his name was fantastically Moses Fleetwood Walker. Yes his brother who also thought it was well day Wilberforce Walker and they called Moses Fleet. That was his nickname cuz his name is Fleetwood. His middle name is Fleetwood. And of course Fleet is always a great Sports nickname. Yes, it'll eventually they began to play other professional teams and that there was a supreme racist on his team named Tony Mullane who was so good-looking that he was nicknamed by the sports writers the Adonis of the box, right the pitchers pitch. They still call the pitching mound to box even though it hasn't been a box for a hundred and twenty five years. Totally was the old days was like Cricket a drop off box. Okay, then then they started to make it a Maryland. And so now the game that we watch there's a mound but in the eighteen hundreds, it was a strip appear that they ran down. Oh, okay, like click underhand underhand. Yeah, so you not to get into the rules but they showed up with Fleet Walker and the team of his life. This picture wouldn't take signals from employee Walker was a catcher so, you know and the signals were always the same fastball curveball whatever else she got, right?.

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

Families of Negro Leaguers rejoice in MLB's decision to recognize league

"On wednesday. Mlb announced that it was quote unquote elevating negro leaguers. Two major league status within its official historical record which helps explain why google searches for the name. Josh gibson suddenly started spiking. Baseball says it's figuring out how to include negro leagues statistics into its canon of sacred numbers. And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him. Well first of all. I don't like the word elevating. I think it should be more of a merger because niggly baseball player or major league players as well. So that's first and foremost this. And i want to bid tuesday night as josh gibson's greg grants and i woke up as josh jacobs. His grandson asher to cerebral calls questions about this happened. Literally when people say happen literally overnight it literally happened overnight and to wake up and see that in lobby made the announcement and josh gibson. Now what we consider not just one greatest league baseball players he. He'll be considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time and so for us in our family. It's a great honor. Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe. When you hear that sean about your great grandfather how does that make you feel you know. Let's say this bridge. Stevens bakers great grandson. He's one of my good friends. We go back and forth back and forth on this all the time. I didn't know that okay. Tell me about your relationship with him. And what you guys talk about on this regard. That's great so burn. Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about. Bay roof is a white josh gibson. So we go back and forth. Is we always say our people always say Yankee stadium was called the house. Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to. I don't go that far. I just say the furthest rebel. We all know he headed out. The ballpark. we know is over near babe. Ruth kane close no all seriously. I've heard several stories two different stories. I heard it. It's out of the ballpark. Been a heard from some players that hit like the top tier of moammar. So you wrote a piece of the undefeated in august about your grandfather's name being on the mvp trophy. And that may have been unthinkable at one point but now it does feel like there could be momentum towards that. Why is this important to you and your family. Then the peak kinda fell on our lap on. This happened to read an article about terry pendleton barry. Larkin and mike schmidt. Making a case to remove kennesaw Mountains landers name off the mvp award and it gets to okay. Well here at a names that they're considering replacing the name with in his frank robinson branch rickey and go shoot josh gifts literally again on the phone with my board directors. I said listen. We just found herself in a race. Let's see how we can win it so for us. I'm hoping that the vwa taking consideration of this and really think twice when they make a decision to rename this after josh gibson but this mvp war if this may not. The jaw is just about josh gibson. This will carry on the legacy of all the other great players as well. Who were denied the opportunity. So josh gibson is carrying several thousand players on his shoulders but his vp award the page. Family the buck leonard. Cool up a bail family. Turkey stars fan oscar charleston. Family all great players will all celebrate. It'll be named after josh. But every time i speak about this i'll make sure represent all the family members who were denied the opportunity

The approximately 3400 players kept out of the segregated majors were, in fact, major league caliber ballplayers in 1969, an all white MLB committee gave major league status to six previous baseball leagues without considering the Negro leagues.

So you're almost able to kind of blend a bit of the career, but intersect it on a number of different levels in the way with this interest in not only baseball generally but the Negro Leagues specifically, it's almost. You know you can be able to sort of. You know work to live and live to live to work I guess, right. I've been blessed period. You know 'cause the topic was so important in the men were so special.

The civil rights movement we had lived through that we'd watch that. And it was it was just an eye opener completely. But it's for sure a seminal book. Robert Peterson's book right and. You know, you stumble across probably one of the better ones right to kind of route. Not only your class but perhaps a lifelong interest over time. He was very he was seminal because he was the first. And you see he was very nice person. Okay and I'll just a little anecdote with with my book. was after it came out. Because all of the people who cared about this topic cared about each other at that time. he allowed me freely to publish his research on all the statistics on the team standings. which was at the back of the addition that I came out.

The Negro Leagues is just sort of culturally known and understood and and you see plenty of garb wear and the logos and The Negro League Baseball Hall of fame in Kansas Lots of lead there's a lot that's happened but I think people need to remember that. You were having discussion say in the mid nineteen ninety s or so. It's really important to recognize that a lot of what was the story of the Negro Leagues was kind of frankly forgotten or glossed over or just not known to amass of baseball indoor sports fans especially those not of African American background or descent. And the the cultural. Sort of force that sort of changed all that was, of course, Ken, Burns tremendous and you know a historically a. PRESCIENT and invaluable. Documentary series on PBS called Baseball. and. If you've not seen that, of course, you need to see all nine or now ten innings slash chapters worth that's available out there on streaming and certain DVD's you still have one of those but. These books. The Peterson, book and invisible men by our guest on Rogerson really actually were very foundational. Elements in the creation of that documentary, and that is where that documentary particular is where. People like Buck O'Neil and other Negro League stars. and. Champions were really highlighted in depth. For a for the first time for a generation of sports fans, and that legacy continues to grow and and more frankly into a lot more things. So we talk about all of those things, the inclusion of of Negro League ballplayers in the hall of fame that sort of chequered history we get into a little bit of that with Don. We talk about the major league baseball current situation. Just literally two months ago finally, taking up the the exercise to figure out and do you really think that this is not going to be the case were the Negro Leagues quote Unquote Major League and from statistical and. Equality of play kind of assessment I think frankly it's safe to say it's kind of a foregone conclusion but whatever major league baseball and or the hall of fame I guess needed to do. To kind of sort of cement that as as the reality but Anyway all of that stuff. This is a fascinating discussion.

He played in the Negro Leagues in the Early Nineteen Fifties, and now here he was just two home runs away new but the excitement was undercut by a sense of alarm as errands quest unleashed a torrent of vicious racism baseball is the quintessential American sport. Now, an African American, a dark skinned black man challenging the power, the supremacy of baseball and of white men. That's why the hate mail death threats bomb threats. This was driving a stake at the heart of American culture. Has All this made you more aware than you're a black baseball player? I've never forgotten. Later, he would confess that he was afraid. He wouldn't live long enough to break the record. Then at the start of the nineteen, seventy, four season. All. Of all. Errands triumph was electrified By the end of his Major League career nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, he had hit a total of seven hundred and fifty five home runs. Errands record would stand for more than thirty years. The braves retired his number and he was elected to the hall of fame. To. This Day Hank Aaron is considered one of baseball's greatest players.

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.

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.

"Just happened last week and that was Henry Aaron wage. Breaking a Babe Ruth's record. I was nearly twelve years old when Henry and hit record home run number 715 in Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. I was a kid growing up in nearby Crawford Georgia, which is about eighty miles east of Atlanta and I told him this story when he hit record homeruns 7:15. I'm in my parents living room and bath. He's circling the bases in Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. I am literally circling the bases in my parents living room. So the old couch was first base the old TV was second base. He had another account that was third base and my mother's recliner was home plate and so as my childhood Idol, Henry Aaron was tension them all I was touching them all jumping for joy and nearly twelve years old. I would toss twelve in June of that year. And so that is I think my greatest sports memory Of all time, you know and because again even in my little town of Crawfordville, Georgia, there was a lot of separation and there were some angst because he was this black man in the Deep South about to break a record that nobody ever thought would be broken. And so even in the 1970s there was a lot of racial tension going on particularly in the South and so there was division even in my little Hometown and so this was an epic moment for me as a kid to witness because you know Hank Aaron is my all-time favorite baseball player. And this was before I even knew he had played in The Negro Leagues. I really learned that he played in New Orleans until I got involved with the Negro Leagues baseball Museum. And so and that was one of the most eye-opening things for me and it set the stage for me wanted to learn as much as I could about this Rich history. So that's my favorite sports memory. Oh, there's so many great stories that I like to tell and one of my favorites Satchel Paige stories of many Satchel Paige stories is a story that Buck O'Neil tow for me because a lot of people because Satchel Gabrielle was so outgoing and so gregarious and so charismatic that and they for men who didn't have a formal education. He was as wise-beyond-his-years and so Buck said there in Florida and Satchel says the night before he called buck nasty. He's an answer the home who was sacked his wife. The Houma is going to cook fish and grits for breakfast. Well to catch you we got to go catch the fish. So they hire a guy who had an old outboard motorboat that going to go on the Tamiami Trail and Satchel not only thought he was great at pitching the world. He thought he was the greatest Fisher and Hunter in the world and so yep. Everybody's fishing and Gabrielle. Everybody's caught a fish except for such and they're rats satchels Satchel. We thought you were the greatest fisherman in the world. You came cheese, you don't and box are satchels got a line in the water and the line has three hooks on it and he says wouldn't you know three fish with hit off at the same time after pulls out the line. He jumping around in the boat. I told you all I was the greatest fisherman in the world. I told you I'm the greatest of all time..

People are just flocking to the museum. Yeah, they flocking to the museum to see the exhibition all the excitement and energy and then when you know a month later, it comes to a screeching halt and so now it's about okay trying to ride this storm out and then see if we can get regenerate this incredible momentum that we had built. We couldn't have gotten off to a better start and as you've touched on this is such an important year for the museum because the Centennial Celebration was providing us a national platform unlike any that we've ever had it is perhaps outside of the grand opening the establishment of this month. I am in nineteen. Ninety the grand opening of the new facility in nineteen. Ninety. Seven the death of Buck O'Neil in 2006. This was the largest platform the museum that had and you know, you're trying to build your strategies and plans around executing a sensational centennial celebration and then getting that be the thing that was springboard your long-term Financial fundraising strategy. And so we off to a flying start and a month later. We got it all knocked down. But you know, we're going to pick ourselves back up and get ready to roll as soon as we're able to get back out there and start this thing rolling again. I'm sure that eventually people will be so excited to have sports back that they will be there in droves and I I hope to be one of them but I have to ask what is it like when you have a kid come to the museum? They don't know anything about the new girl leagues because I'm sure you guys get tonnes of families but also school trips and summer camp trips and I'm sure a lot of its don't know about the name leagues because we're already very far removed from the existence of the active games of the Negro Leagues. Yeah. Now you're absolutely right and it's mind-blowing for the kids who come here because as you touched on they've been removed from these kind of struggles, they can't even fathom that our country was once separated by color. So segregation is something that absolutely blows them away. And as I tell people Most of our children summarize segregation quite simply that was dumb and they're right it was done. It was absolutely dumb but it's important that they understand that life hasn't always been as good as it is for some of our citizens in this country and that you could go to jail for life in the wrong section of a ballpark or drinking from the wrong water fountain or using the wrong restroom and quite frankly going to jail with some of the good things that happen. A lot of people lost their lives for breaking those simple societal standards..

"A tip your cap to the Negro Leagues and it was going to be an unprecedented show of solidarity among players and fans and teams and and as you know, as a fan of this game, there's nothing more honorable than you can do in our sport than typical cat and to see the players and fans all together and essentially tipping their cap to the Negro Leagues. I think we're going to be a watershed moment for Negro Leagues history and for this Museum and so we don't know what that situation is going to be if and when we get baseball restart it or started in this case and whether or not we'll be able to do that or Thursday. But you know, we certainly hope we remain hopeful about that opportunity. We still right now planning our November 214 Centennial Gala here in Kansas City. So that is still being planned and we'll obviously have to see how officials deemed this virus situation and to make a determination but we still got a little bit of time as I relates to that but a lot of our spring summer events, we're going to even have cancel or postpone them to some other time makes me so sad. Oh, this was such a big year for you guys. I mean you're super hopeful about it, but there is always like that twinge of sadness that these things are postponed and I've had friends that are postponing their weddings and people who have not been able to have proper funerals for a loved one. It's such a crazy time and I think you know some people who don't understand or didn't grow up loving Sports Don't Understand Job. So mixture of pain and kind of confusion about this time without Sports because for people who love them, you know, we kind of live our yearly calendars around Sports, you know, spring and fall are for baseball and fall winter spring is basketball football hockey and without them, you know, we all kind of feel adrift. No, it's not and I think that's probably the one of biggest challenges, you know to be isolated at home. You don't even have sports to watch and so, you know anytime that I've taken and it's rare that I take time off you can really just sit there and you can watch whatever whatever season is was football basketball baseball. And of course this time the year as baseball season rolls around this is our biggest tourist season time. Yeah. So as we move into May and June July month that is the height of our tourist season built around the baseball season, and so yeah, it certainly creates a level of sadness and for us we were on such a wage Bindas Hai, you know when we had the hundredth anniversary commemoration on February 13th here in Kansas City.

And so this exhibit was going to Chronicle all of their own stories because as I tell people all the time, it didn't get any easier for pumps and green when he broke the color barrier with your Red Sox in 1959 than it did for Jackie Robinson in nineteen fifty-seven. These athletes all had the trials and tribulations as they were trying to navigate their path into the major leagues and yet as we so often times doing our society, we just only celebrate wage. First and and rightfully we celebrate Jackie Robinson for it being that pioneering first, but it doesn't diminish the others who also were the first with their respective major leagues. And so Larry Doby would break the color barrier in the American League just weeks after Jackie. He is almost an afterthought. But again, that's how we are now Society..

"And I've been doing a number of these interviews and we spent Jackie Robinson day pretty much all day talking about the museum and Jackie Robinson's connection to the Negro Leagues. And so I think more people now may be aware of the museum never before at a time when we're shut down people are looking for things and for me, it was important that we at least stay on top of mind for folks who were interested in, Georgia. The subject matter and this story, you know, that makes me so happy because I like a lifelong fan, but I do think like you said out of a dark time. There are so many possibilities and so many reasons to hold on to hope and that's exactly what this time can be for the Negro Leagues Museum because you have this chance to spread it around the world for parents to be like instead of letting your kids stare at Call of Duty or I don't know what I don't know video games. I've honestly never fucked up my life but to offer them the chance to like learn about an incredible piece of sports history. That's an unbelievable opportunity for families that might otherwise not have the time or resources to be able familiarize themselves with what you guys are doing. Yeah, and it's given us a new business model to kind of now look at and so now we're starting to look more at digitizing some of our assets even the traveling exhibition log. And I think we're finding some avenues that could be revenue streams for the museum through that process. And so, you know, yeah, we've had a little time as a result of the shutdown to kind of think about other ways in which we can enhance the museum experience for folks. So I do think out of this shutdown, it has given us an opportunity to challenge ourselves to find new and creative and interesting ways to not only Market the museum and provide access to the museum, utilizing a digital platform. And so now we're starting to examine other possibilities even without traveling exhibitions and digitizing them and creating an experience where people who may not get a chance to see it in a forgiven sinner. You can still see it and experience and still generate some revenue for the museum in doing so and so yeah, there's already been something positive that has come out of this page. Coronavirus shut down even though as you well know I can't wait for this to be over and I want things to be back to normal and I want to be able hang out with people here a museum and shake hands and high five and take pictures with people again. And you know, I miss that immensely but at least that while we're in there's down time. We're we're trying to be inventive and creative as we can and it's helped shape a new business model. I believe for the museum. There's going to be beneficial for us for years to come. Yes. Will you are a very Hands-On president. So it's not like, you know, you're just like I want to get back to work to sit behind my desk you're out there every day. You're you're not only the president your life the I don't want to say mascot cuz that's not that doesn't give you enough of the glory that you deserve for what you do, but you know, it's important to me and I've never been one that just says, okay. I'm going to sit behind job. The death and tell other people what to do. I just want to be out there in front as well. And I love mean some of the most special days for me is when I'm in the exhibition in walking around the museum with people and not seeing their reaction to this story and telling the stories that I love to tell the stories that I learned first-hand from the great Buck O'Neil and Monte Irvin Minnie minoso. The Ernie Banks is of the world and sharing those stories..

"You're so synonymous with them at this point that I cannot imagine them without you. I didn't even know until I was you know, preparing a catch up with you that you had ever left the museum. You went to the National Sports Center for the disabled in Kansas City. Yes. Yes, wonderful organization did provide a therapeutic Recreational Sports Programming for folks with disabilities and it was very heart-warming and very gratifying as well. But, you know to be honest, my heart was always here at the Negro Leagues baseball Museum. It's following in the footsteps of my friend My Mentor am confident the late great buckled meal. And so when I left it was under some circumstances when the museum was not doing well. They had brought in a new leader of the organization and to be frank..

"BoB Kendrick president of the Negro Leagues baseball Museum and Negro Leagues historian and baseball historian. I am so excited to have you on thank you so much for being a guest. It's an absolute pleasure to catch up with you again. Thanks so much for having me on I'm cannot express like to listeners and to you. I'm fangirling right now. This is such a such a treat to get to talk to you again, especially because you recently celebrated your nine year anniversary as president of the museum. Yes. Yes, you know time flies. It seems like it was just yesterday. I was sitting my boxes back down. I had left the museum in 2010 to take on another role with another not-for-profit organization and then thirteen months later. I am coming right back to the Negro Leagues baseball Museum or coming home to the Negro Leagues baseball Museum, and it seems like I just set my boxes down and literally hit the ground running. We've been running ever since but it's been a match. To call nine years as we've had, you know, a really significant turn around here at the Negro Leagues baseball Museum. And so I'm really proud of what we've been able to accomplish over those nine years. Now that being said we still have a lot of work to do we've just scratched the surface. But yeah, it's been nine amazing years for me as president. It's hard to believe it's been I ain't twenty-seven years of affiliation with this Museum. So I got involved with this place almost from its infancy going all the way back to 1963. So it's been a glorious ride for me working with an organization that I am just absolutely passionate about and never in my wildest dreams. You have your own what I thought that this would have turned into a career when I began volunteering with the museum way back in 1993, but it's done just that and it's been one of the most rewarding and gratifying things. I think could have ever met. They're so lucky to have you I was actually going to say you began as a volunteer when you were working with the Kansas City Star..

"So it was like a bunch of years and also shout out to like the Eleven Hundred plus athletes and coaches and 300-plus front office Personnel across football basketball and MLB who signs that players Coalition thing I get Congress to pass the ending qualified immunity act just like really amazing to see all these athletes stepping up LeBron doing that voter thing to end like voter suppression and make sure people vote just so many amazing athlete activists out there doing stuff. It's great to see we just have to like keep going. I mean like last week we dedicated our episode to Brianna Taylor and the police report came out today and like dead. They honestly have the audacity to say that she had no injuries and that there was no forced entry when they broke into her home while she was sleeping and shot her eight times. Yeah, she was literally sleeping in bed. And also like the person they were looking for had already been arrested was in custody then it turns out one of the cops has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women and like nothing has come from that either and these guys still haven't been fired or suggested and the new Cycles moving on and like it can't move on like we have to fight for this woman. Absolutely this woman and her family deserve justice just it's inexcusable. There's so much wrong with the situation. But basically we need to email call sign petitions donate to important causes organ a link to setting a freaking rooftop. Yeah tweet about her just like took her memory alive and we're linking the same act blue racial Justice organization page in the podcast description. They split your donations between multiple very worthy causes that are working off. To dismantle systemic racism and just make this country a better place for everybody and get Justice for Brianna. Just like do everything you can don't let this stuff happen. I mean, this is Sade acceptable. It's so beyond unacceptable. So we are continuing with our initiative to pass the mic to black people and we have another awesome guests for you guys this week, I grew up playing this game called stratomatic which is like a baseball board game apparently now, they have an online version, but I played it the old-fashioned way with my dad on Saturday afternoons after synagogue. It's how I fell in love with baseball. You may have player cards. They're kind of like Advanced versions of baseball cards and my dad being like a collector of all things educational had literally 30 different debit cards, and one of the decks of cards was like different from all the rest. I remember asking my dad about it and he was like, well, this is the Negro League. So I learned about the Negro Leagues from playing strat-o-matic with my dad and he told me all these stories. Yep. Asked BoB Kendrick who is the president of the Negro Leagues Museum one of the most incredible people in the Baseball World. He's been the president for over a decade. He's been volunteering and working for the Negro Leagues Museum since the early nineties. He has the most incredible stories.

"Let's talk about that because this is i. I'm guessing the first time that he not only is is a player but also a manager or is able to source straddle both of those roles goals for the first time. Yeah that's exactly right and and being a manager At least at that time at least for Charleston meant really putting together the roster. You're the general manager. As much as you are a manager The mandate the teams. A man named Colonel Struthers who was like the second black policemen? Lebron Harrisburg Way. Something like three hundred pounds but taught ballet dancing to use the parents use quite a character He wasn't necessarily so well connected in the world of Major League Baseball to put together To be able to together really good roster that was that was Charleston's job and that was something I think he really I wanted to do so. Give me a sense. Then of of of the Harrisburg experience because I think it's also important period of time In the Negro Leagues generally right. Where a lot of things in this country things kind of stumbled along as the Great Depression effectively took root if you will electronically macro to the point where there was a from all indications? It seems like You know the leagues that had had sort of gotten sort of their starting in the early part of the twentieth kind of kind of crumbling and and really kind of you know kind of went dark after a while after say twenty nine nine and thirty but this is during his time in Harrisburg where he's arguably kind of the peak but he's he's being able to do both thinks thanks right and and kind of stand out in in both those categories both managing and playing. Yeah absolutely it. Is it definitely part of his peak. I mean some of the statistics. Sixty was up in Harrisburg Are Crazy they were considered crazy at the time. And and and this sort of more exacting research down in the last few years that people going back to them. All box scores There's still crazy can nineteen twenty four. It's four zero five. Nineteen twenty five. It looks like he hit like four twenty seven. I mean insane numbers But Harrisburg this is twenty four twenty five. This is before the Great Depression. His four year. Run Their Eastern color the had probably problems were not caused by the incipient Great Depression. That was probably just more. The usual. All endemic now under capitalization issues of the Negro Leagues. It's when he goes to Hildale and that's in twenty eight twenty nine that's from. The depression starts to catch up with him. Another league folds in which Dale is playing and That creates a lot of this Again player movement like crazy only with L. deal for a couple of years and that's with the depression and the folding of that team in that league pushes them out to Pittsburgh Eric where he spends the last sort of prime vague if he's playing career and ends up with a man named Cumberland Posey and his homestead Greece. All going Eh. Get to come hosie in this in a minute and held in Pittsburgh in particular in a second but but maybe this is a good opportunity to kind of maybe delve in a little bit in to some of the the numbers that he's putting up both on all parts I guess fielding certainly in hitting and maybe as you sort of answer or give give our audience a sense of just how dominant and standout his stats and his play was slash work. Can you square that though also with what I would imagine magin would be you know a a trust factor when it came to statistics in these. Because you know how how how credible how not or how we're lucky exactly the question dead. That's exactly the question asked the question I asked right. I WANNA know that too. I don't WanNa just rely on sort of mythical. Oh number Unfortunately we don't have to so let me answer your question. In a couple of ways I bush is. How good are Negro League statistics today? Can we trust them. And it's really odd in if you think about it but the stats we have. Today are much much better than we've ever had before including at the time When teams were very lax about affording stats or league certainly relaxed about collecting them? oftentimes and then you know numbers just sort of get made up in the press o without too much to back them up so what happened and this is just one of the great things happen in sports forth in the last generation the last ten or fifteen years really this army of volunteer researchers have gone back all. These newspapers have been digitized. A lot of box scores were reported. And they compiled like we compile statistics from those scores and and the site. I'd recommend any of your listeners are interested in this this I called team heads dot com houses. All of this and it's really well done and only counts gains against top competition petition. So this isn't just games against the little sisters of the poor. This is Major Negro League competition and also includes games at these teams played against Major League. Teams As well as you'd like the Latin America as well so. That's a pretty good answer that first question the quality we don't have all of them The estimate that I've gotten from people who are really know this well. It's like seventy five eighty percent of the box scores between teams so it good representative sample for the stats are pretty good Sorry if you wanted to jump in there but the second thing is We know that and we know. I know that Oscar right now and they're still putting a new numbers from time to time. Box Go right now at about half the plate appearances Willie mays add get some context tax. He had two hundred ten runs. Three hundred fifty five stolen bases hits three fifty one four thirty one days five seventy five slugging percentage. That's really good and I've sort of played around constructing. Like what would an alternative Major League Oscar truly been able to do it seems to me. You just very conservative and say well what did he at least three hundred home runs. He would've still in at least four hundred basis. He almost does again in half the plate. Appearances may have. It was very durable. He would hit at least three hundred three fifty one the Negro Leagues Um and we know who would have been like a positive defender you know in the advanced analytics language language you know above zero defensive wins above replacement who else in major league history has done that nobody nobody has has hit those used for marks..
