"20 w G, and I'm Steve Bertrand, Thanks very much for tuning in well Until this week, there's been only one major league pitcher who had opened the season with a no hitter. Now there are two. How can that be? Larry Lester's on the phone line with us. He joins us, Larry welcome, but thank you for having me Steve, unless you've been described as the driving force between getting the Negro leagues recognized as major league baseball, so I feel like I should say, congratulations. Do you feel you deserve Congratulations? Well, I appreciate the sentiments and compliments, but it's a bittersweet moment after a 50 plus year journey trying to capture this history and make it available to the baseball public's. I should point out that Bob Feller is one of two. The other is Leon Day, who was did it with the Newark Eagles. And because of this move by Major League Baseball. All of those stats from the Negro leagues are now going to be included in Major League Baseball records. Correct. That is correct. 1946 Leon Day pitched on opening day no hitter against the Philadelphia Stars, winning two to nothing. We got a lot of great history to share and I'm looking forward to the American public welcoming These new leaders on the leader board. Yeah, I mentioned earlier. I was watching a biography of Charley Pride who we lost this week to Cove it and you know, and I did not know he pitched in the Negro leagues until I saw that video. Yes, they used to us sing and play the good tar on the bus and You know his teammates it here Talent, and when I talked to Charlie, he said, I knew I had talent. But I couldn't hit the curve ball. And I'm just in every picture. So I thought maybe I would try the country music scene. It worked out for me. I just learned something. I can't hit the curveball, either Charley pride and I have something in common. Oh, that's three of us. You mentioned earlier that it was bittersweet. Explain that for me. Well, it's bittersweet. And when I received the alert yesterday morning Ah, my eyes just flooded with tears..

"So we can't talk about the Negro Leagues or the Negro Leagues Museum. Without talking about Jackie Robinson and the museum does a really beautiful job of chronicling his transition from the Kansas City. Monarchs to the Brooklyn Dodgers and I think people think Jackie just walked out of nowhere and started playing for the Brooklyn dodgers but Israel rookie season was nineteen forty five. Yeah tell people all the time before he was number forty two. He was number five for the Kansas City. Monarchs and of course the year that he spent in Kansas City. He fell in love with everything that Kansas City is famous for Barbecue and jazz. Everyone Remembers Forty. Two obviously Major League Baseball as retired the number on every Jersey except for one day when Jackie Robinson Day in the major leagues. But one of the things that Bob has to explain to anyone who will listen is that no Jackie Robinson. At the time in one thousand forty five was not the greatest big rallies baseball player. There were other meagerly players who you can make a legitimate argument for bed of baseball players. Then Jackie Robinson that. This wasn't just about talent you had to have someone who had the intestinal fortitude to deal with the adverse social conditions that they would be faced with as higher near breaking the color barrier and Jackie had him on. He wasn't a guy that was going to go out and party. It was gonNA make an embarrassment of himself once he got to the major leagues instead. He understood the entire weight the gravity that was placed upon him by saying. Hey you represent not just yourself not just your family but you present a whole race of people in your own country. Yeah you had to have the entire package. Because I gue- came failed. I cannot fail I guy failed. There is no second guy and so that was the enormous weight that Robinson was carrying on his back when he took that challenge becoming baseball's chosen. What and another important player you learn about during the tour is Hank Aaron. A player that Bob just talk so lovingly about his all time favorite player. Yeah. This is my favorite picture in the entire exhibition. Because I'm a huge Henrio Fan. He is my all time favorite baseball player. And my childhood idol as a kid growing up in Crossville Georgia That's who I wanted to be in it matters to Bob Kendrick because he grew up in Georgia and of course when Hank Aaron Broke immeasurably baseball record for the most home runs. He did it as Atlanta Braves. So Bob Griese disgrace story about how he was enacting. What occurred on the field in his own living room. When he reckoned homerun some fifteen he's circling the bases in Atlanta Fulton County Stadium and I'm circling the bases in my mother's living room in Crossville Georgia and as he was touching them all hours testing them all and so he holds a special place in my heart and nate. One of my favorite things about the museum is it does justice to the role of black women in the Negro Leagues. Were where there were three women who played professionally in the Negro News Tony Stone. Connie Morgan and Mamie Peanut Johnson Pioneers women who competed with an against the men in the one thousand. Nine hundred fifty. Tony Stone took the roster place of Henry Aaron when she joined the Indianapolis clowns so hank Aaron goes onto the major leagues the following year. Comes Tony Stone? Someone who had played barnstorm as a woman baseball player for many years and finally got the opportunity to be sort of a crowd pleaser and a really talented baseball player. Who got a chance to play in the Negro Leagues and is not just a women who played the game as well in the it was a very power nearing league. They also have female leaders executives owners in the Negro Leagues Way Ahead of Major League Baseball. Most notably EPA Manley effort manly and a husband Abe own Newark Eagles. But it was Mrs Manley who ran the day to day operations. That baseball team consider BOB. The first woman general manager in professional baseball history. She own and she knew the business of baseball as well as any man. The only thing that the nearly cared about is can you play or do you know the business a baseball if you know one of those two things? If you're pretty good at it they included you in a way that few other businesses were allowing that to occur in the nineteen forties.

"How would God moment that you were were black? When did God tell you well? I learned that there's people in my family that are mixed black. I see. Let's not talk about the degree of blackness. Oh no you're blocking the name that's obvious and if you know anything about that is the end of the clip. But I I must say everybody wants to be black into. It's really time to be black. And right now is probably the best best time for everybody to be black. We live in a very peculiar moment in time in history the JAL seat beat the pitcher of the black woman delivering the articles of impeachment for white racists premise president and she was delivering these impeachment. Papers to the Senate and she was doing there actually Martin. Luther King's birthday. That is a sight to see. That is a conic pitcher. That's GONNA be historical and it's going to be talked about years to come trust me member. I told Y'all not said this. So let's get right down to it. Let's talk about the failure of integration and the rise of black consciousness consciousness. Because that's where we're at right now in this day and in this time we are raising the consciousness in the vibrational pitch of our people. We gotTA raise that frequency family so I WANNA go back in time. Go back in history but before I go back I can do that right. I already know that the questions asked is all have we gained anything since being integrated in white society. So move a we made progress but still have a long way to go me personally. I believe that we still counted as lob stocks and then the commodity but the only difference. Let's is instead of slaves that stamped on us is the word prisoner in mate conflict and those who are arrested arrested convicted and sentenced to jail are traded on the stock market. It's the same thing different ballgame. Same thing thing is just different terminology and we covered that extensively and my first documentary elementary genocide. Ah The school to prison pipeline. The state sponsored genocide continues by cruel power hungry people that controls the masses asses to politics law enforcement. And that's why law enforcement was the apparatus use to bring down black empowerment organizations such as the Black Path is all. It was law enforcement agency Z.. Such as Department of Justice the FBI and the CIA that was complicit in the Sasser Nation of Martin. Luther King says his this holiday. Let's talk about more decay because the federal government has one of his quotes etched in the building headquarters and they posted that on twitter. And your black twitter win it because it is known that the FBI complicit let's say in his motor and that's what they will do to you they will murder you and honor you with a holiday and turn your dream into a nightmare and have mainstream media. Put out a message that this cheek charted integration loving passive individual when in reality Martin Luther King In his last dying days was opposed to integration. He was fighting for justice for the poor and the marginalized. WHO's against the Korean War? He was guest military visit visit and the over police of black individuals so with this narrative that the FBI is trying to paint in on a him. I hope you'll see. Do I know I know the majority of people see doing and will we have to do. Is Anytime that Shit. Come across our time long. We have to push back on it laugh at it make mockery of it but at the same time put forth the truth. What really happened? And Ana Martin Luther King as this pacifist that they want us to recognize by as a revolutionary hero took black people all around the world. So I WANNA I wanna get into the whole notion of integration in in in order to do that I wanna go back pass. the landmark ruling of Brown versus board of Education are in nineteen fifty four. Because we can go back to the nineteen forties six where we had the Negro League. The Baseball Leagues. You had the Baltimore ally giants. The Newark Eagles the Indianapolis clowns the Kansas City. Moana and these was the top Doc Tier Baseball Teams in the Negro League. Now this was before the Brooklyn dodgers signed. Jackie Robinson he actually played for. I think it was the Baltimore alight giants before he was actually Signed to the Brooklyn dodgers and one of the things that happened is that Major League Baseball was Cherry picking black play. He is that they could sign and it was taking the best of the best. So that left the Negro Leagues where less than so part talent. So what essentially happens. Just say for instance US analysis of Modern Day time with the HIP hop movement. So I know most of Jaka understand that Connie West Jay Z.. They on Def jam rackets. They don't sign a contract or renew their contract with Def jam records and their star players on his record label they they decided to go to live nation now their fans and followers is GonNa go with them to live nation and in return. Def Jam Roster is going to be diminished because of their star players laugh and went to live nation. Same thing happened with The Negro League in baseball one of the things that a lot of people don't know is that when they was acquiring these black players by modern contract and they will say whatever contract you have with. The Negro League is not in void because it wasn't legitimate business because it was a black business and essentially what that did was really was the death of the Negro. I believe when a lot of the star players started going to the major league baseball because you got to remember that these teams was known to donate donate to charity and social caused and they was the financial arm of the black community because their stadiums was in the black community. And you had uh shoes you had drivers you had people that worked in the stadium. People that Woke the concession. Session stands so it. It provided a lot of jobs for those that that was in the community the death of the Liberal League began again with the signing of Jackie. Robinson you could see that in the movie forty two based on his life. He was the first one to break the color barrier and signed to a major league. But what a lot of people don't know is that Jackie Robinson. Listen wasn't the most talented player. In the Negro League there was other players that had exceptional talent and that was highly respected in was deemed a better player. The Jackie Robinson. The difference was Jackie Robinson was hand picked by The manager of dodgers. Because he felt that he was young he was articulate a he could be a role model and he was an individual. That would do what his white handlers told him to do. And what in all bucked assists. See this this is A.. T. GIC tactic. By a lot of these are racist white supremacists. The same thing. Happened with with Rosa Pau we say she integrated the bus system which is not true. There was a young sister. can't recall L. A.. Name Right now I think it was caught head. According something like that to that effect that was actually the first person arrested for refusing using to give up a seat but the reason why the N. Double A. C. P. didn't take on her case and have her as the face of the cause to integrate. The bus system is because she was young she was pregnant out of wedlock and there is. That would've been a good look so you you gotTa understand the statistic tactics that are being used to integrate so in institutions in society. And you got a question. ACID- why is it being done. Is it fully beneficial. Took Black Society as a whole. I'm not talking about a few. Aw Rich billionaires millions. I'm talking about Black Society as a whole if those that was a part of the civil rights roll looked at what happened to the Negro Lee and used that as a cautionary tale. I think we wouldn't be in the position that we we are in now because when they started signing a lot of black play is trying to acquire black.

"He goes university. I want to talk a little bit about the announcing crew on Sunday. The Eagles got. Fox's I don't know if you call it thirty team. They're eighteen eighteen their team the Z.. Team for their announcing crew Kenny Albert Rhonda Barber now. The Eagles have been terrible. This year. They were five and six coming in this game. They had super high preseason expectations that have completely fallen short. And they're the type of team that just last week. They were supposed to have a Sunday night. Football game at home. What should have been? Maybe a potential playoff preview. I was thinking back in April scheduled came out or even in August myself for the season. When's Russell Wilson and sorry football now known to watch the eagles no one wanted to watch the NBC? Did Not want to be inflated for that game. I don't blame them. I didn't want to be in the stands for that game which I talked about a ton last the clearly. The Eagles are drawing the way they might have. In the past and twenty seventeen twenty eighteen anti era they used to be marketed team. This season they are not a marquee team. Then it fell so Type team gets bumped off Sunday. FOOTBALL GETS FLEX to one o'clock game and they're also taking the team that gets Fox's worst announcing crew Kenny Albert in Ron Barber. Her Rendezvous Barber if you talk about like their most hated athletes of all time I truly think he might be. Maybe number on outright release number one the non cowboys category. Just I m twenty five years old so the first he's I've taught a little bit out my first season. I really concretely. Remember Fallen Eagles with two thousand one season the first time they won the division since I believe nineteen eighty-eight so that was a huge season Eagles falling knock off the giants and and the end of the regular season to claim that title the giants in the last couple of years. That was the real hump. They couldn't get over. The Eagles could be the giants mcnabb. Could giants re cut me the giants. So they do that to other one it was an NFC. James Name. My Heart's broken. The first of many many many heartbreaks in my life forgotten the eagles in two thousand and two that was the year. I'll be home field advantage this year. Your last name at the vet reclosing now going to link the House and mcnabb bill winning it the last name to link the Super Bowl burn a win over knock off the link with a super bowl trophy little banner Super Bowl Rinse Ronnie Barbara wasn't having that for those who don't remember if you're younger eagles fan. Maybe someone who's Newark Eagles fandom that the game the eagles were favorites against the Tampa Bay buccaneers Tampa. Bay buccaneers hadn't ever lost a game below forty five degrees or some insane stat like that. And they're playing in Philadelphia January so it was obviously freezing out and the birds ate doug and completely they were fair to the game. That was their year of the entire tire any error. I think that was their best team. That was by far Made the besides twenty seventeen game run for the money but the best eagles defence I've ever seen and late in the fourth goes driving the game a little out of reach but there's a chance and eagles are progressing navigate identical to get into the red zone and mcnabb throws one of those classic iconic mcnabb picks. You're like I don't even know what the Hell is going through that through Ted and Ronnie Barbara Grabs. It goes for six the other way. And just as he's he's running down the field just people are pouring on the Feels like this trash. Concrete is crumbling around. As if there's dynamiting stadium end Ronay Barbara. When he got in the end zone for his touchdown celebration he flipped the switch? Everything One caboose on Legal Super Bowl hopes veteran stadium overall so I hate Ronnie Barbour. I was Hellos I I was eight going on nine. Yes so that's like I'm a kid and like all the world still still naive still innocence. Still just loving the game of football because I love watching I doubt I love playing with my friends outside in the street in the school yard. It's still magical than me. I don't really know so what it really means to be. Eagles fan the way we have learned over the last twenty years where it's just stabbing gut death by thousand cuts all that nonsense. Not since clearly people talk about getting triggered Ron Barber triggers me. Obviously what he was saying about the game was kind of negative against the Eagles Besides this is the fact that every referee announcer in person in the League office in all four professional sports are biased against philadelphian players in its citizens overall. Ronnie Barbara clearly had anti Philly bias and everything he said just infuriated so many things you were saying wrong about Carson Wentz first of all the Eagles quarterback his name is Carson Wentz. He wants to North Dakota state. He wears number eleven. His name's not Carson Palmer it's Carson Wentz Rhonda You Call Them Carson Palmer several times and he'd just your that's your job on the guy. Does this job Bob. You must be the other Guy Ronay. Oh my God yeah Carson Palmer one I think like the two thousand two or two thousand three heisman trophy in the got ticked by the Bang for its role. Oh like an okay career. Maybe that's a whence his most likely outcome is we could talk about another time but his name's not Carson Palmer it's Carson Wentz Rhonda. You're you're doing it on purpose. You're trolling me. You're getting triggered. You know what you're doing. You might not know who I am insane. Pardon my brain thinks that I. You know exactly what you're doing. I'm sick of. It did understand anything was just on a couple of those plays where the first play the game. The First Eagles offensive drive. I shouldn't say to to play the game. No it was the first play the game for the Eagles offensive so I play. Ronald Darby. Picks off Fitzpatrick Eagles throw it down the seam earth's cutting towards the the end zone Earth's completely falls down stumble. Bum stumbled them and tough day for I know he was a little banged up. But that's another issue where the Eagles medical staff should not be trusted under any circumstances whatsoever in any time period now in the future clean house clean housing lottery guards so Earth's falls down which is just this great you know clearly are taught. Receiving option is healthy on the field medical job. Find job medical team but he falls down in the ball gets picked off like if Virtue runs the route he catches it and goes in the end zone. Lisa down in the two three yard line but he falls just on his own accord. The I don't know the dolphins defensive backs vaccinate one of the guys like could've caught a drops it was in on really and Ronnie just like Oh Carson Wentz. He's almost the ball right back to.

"There's a wonderful book out that I hope everybody will check out. It's called few and chosen defining negro leagues greatness and it's written by Monte Irvin, along with Phil peppy and Phil joins us now fill is no stranger, of course, to writing outstanding books. He's the author of more than forty sports books. He was the AKIs beat writer for the new York Daily News for fourteen seasons, and this is the latest book in the ongoing series of view and chosen titles. First of all, I think they'll, you should tell everybody who Monte Irvin was because there's not a lot of people, especially if they're young that will remember that name. Was a great player for the New York Giants. He was one of the big players in the nineteen fifty one season when the giants wiped out Thursday and a half game deficit, and won the pennant on Bobby Thomson's home run turns out that money urban just the foot Thompson hit the home run, money, urban was that bad in popped up, and he's had to live that down. It was like, but take nothing away from him. He was a great player. He's in the hall of fame primarily for his work in the negro leagues. He played for the Newark eagles, but he was an outstanding player. And unfortunately, got to the big leagues at an advanced as us about twenty seven twenty eight was terrific, terrific play, that he was a big run producer for the giants in nineteen fifty one. In fact, there was a time when branch Rickey wanted to sign him. And there was some talk that he was going to be the, the trailblazer. He was going to be the one to break the color barrier in major league baseball. But money had. Just come out of the service and didn't feel he was ready to play at his peak and the Klein, the opportunity to sign with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Otherwise history might have been changed. Monte wanted to do with this book, well, you know, the Frewin chosen series began. Oh, about seven eight years ago when a triumph books in Chicago, asked me to do a Yankee book and I had really run out of ideas. And what can I do about the Yankees that hadn't already been done? So I suggested that I had always had this thought that it would be an interesting concept to have a player from team select the time his choice of the all time team for the team. But which he played. They thought it was a good idea. So we did Whitey Ford selecting his all-time Yankees team. It was well received we went on from them, and we did the Saint Louis cardinals with Tim macabre, the Boston Red Sox with Johnny pesky. The Chicago Cubs with Ron Santo the dodgers Brooklyn in Los Angeles with Duke Snider, then they wanted to do another one, and we thought we'd do the giants and we talked about, and we eventually wanted to doing the giants with Bobby Thomson. I had suggested Monte Irvin would be the right guy to pick the all time giants team and an editor at triumph books that we have an idea, why don't you get money into pick the all time negro league team, and it was such a fascinating thought idea for me because I had studied a little bit about the negro leagues. But not that much, and certainly money who played the and new all those great players was the perfect guy to do it. I'm so glad I did because it was an eye opener for me. And also from Elissa history, lesson standpoint, tell everybody about the negro leagues because they began in the late eighteen hundreds continued to the nineteen sixties and there were as many as eight separate leagues at one time weren't there. Oh, yeah. That were I didn't really get into much about the history of the league as much as I did with the players, we concentrated on that period of time when they had the when it was a negro National League the negro American League. So we are focused was pretty much from around. Mid nineteen twenties until the, the leagues disbanded and around in, in the sixties..

"Bryce Harper. Because of the way that the Phillies ballpark is configuration. It. It's conducive for a power hitter light, Bryce Harper. To hit. And I'm thinking in the back of my mind around forty home runs. If you're hitting forty home runs you expecting maybe hundred ten to maybe hundred and twenty runs batted in. Will he be able to have a high batting average? With the way the game is today with the way that the defenses are stacked against you and your power positions. Our expectations too high based on that last promo. We just heard because I know you. The baseball fans are expecting him to be able to be you all and be all and. Oh, he just struck out again. Oh, he just took a third strike. Oh, he didn't hit the ball as hard as I thought why didn't hit the ball to the other field. Why is he playing and hitting against where the defensive stack all of those things that we will be visiting and having conversation about and expectations of when he will be able to participate and spring training. But with that being said, we're going to go to the phones, and we're going to say good morning to rally and Ben Salem, good morning. Good morning. Hi. Yes. Wally did you see the daily news power on Friday? Yes. Go ahead. Well, that brings me back to the iceman common. The greatest soul. You're in my lifetime. Jerry Butler used to good you too good. You touched my soul because he's one of my all time favorites for your precious home. Oh, no. That's that's that's the that's not Jackie Wilson. Jerry butler. Oh, you saying Jerry Butler. Yes. Jerry butler. Yes. And he also was very close to me. I've told the story many times that when he performed at the uptown theater and for the fans listening in I lived at sixteenth and dolphin. So I could walk to the uptown theater. And I went to the uptown theater when it was a movie theater before it became the entertainment center, and one of the major entertainment centers in the country, and Jerry and became friends, and he comes from Chicago. So I can play basketball, and whatever I say, okay, I'm gonna come and get you on a Saturday morning. And I'm going to take you to twenty seven diamond Molin recreation center, which was a mecca for basketball, and he sat there and walks us play basketball, and he was an all of the. Talent. And the way that we played and we maintain a relationship from that point on go ahead. Wally. Depress conference. One of the most important things. I from voice he expressed. Well, that was given to him by John his wife and the Phillies organization. The fact that when he came here. He seemed a passion and loan. Oh, the Philly fans he was treated wonderfully Unicom house on the Ellen Huet nurse. The most important thing that Jesus taught us law. Barnum near Olympia. Let me just stop right there while it 'cause you bring up a good factor. Not only in sports, but in life, and you indicated that what you read and heard is that the way he was treated from the bottom up not just from the top down. And that's why with me it's always important with the people at the lower rung to even get more love than the people at the top of the room. Sprayed. Lamar. Yeah. I liked it talk. Just a quick thing about last night. Go ahead. My game was just like a playoff game playoff. Even though we rat. Without y'all we we we played a great game. We we we just like you should. We had a bad last three or four minutes of the game. But the one thing that I express it constantly Sony. It's the same old song. Turnovers. Well, turnovers always going to affect you. When you have teams of the caliber of last night, meaning the warriors and the seventy Sixers, and let's get the Sixers credit right up front in terms of how well they played without their main man Joel Embiid and the the way that they played throughout the game was very effective. What really hurt them while and my radio listening audience is that the last three minutes or so of the game. The the seventy Sixers became stagnant. Yesterday. The ball was not moving they were not moving. They were not getting movement in terms of either side of what I'm talking about. And they ended up with difficult shots are turnovers. Now, let's give let's give the warriors credit but being able to play that way. But you know, that's their MO. If you know, that's their MO, then you don't play into their hand, you continue to play in the way that you were which was moving a ball movement of bodies. And you ended up with at least decent shots. They ended up. Not getting really good shots are getting four shots to a large degree. Playoff time. We've got two turnovers. No matter who were in the playoffs. You cannot give them twenty points that they don't deserve. I'm an agreement with you while the thank you for the call this morning. Thank you. God bless right back at you. My man by let's go to Joe and hundred ten county. Good morning. Joe morning sunny. How are you today? Did I pronounce that correctly? Yes. Hundred and county. Where's Huntington Huntington county just north of Trenton, New Jersey? Oh, yup. In my part of the world in. Yeah. Yeah. Flemington? Yeah. Well that play ball up in and the Trenton area and was very familiar with the people in that area. So that that that's an area. That's close to me. Yeah. Yeah. And I'm originally from the northeast part of jersey, Newark and Elizabeth area. So that's another world unto itself. That's New York. That's New York's World where you on this side. This is like Philadelphia's world let me tell you the world even gets nicer when you cross the Delaware. So. I spent some time down on Lansdale, and it's beautiful. They're wonderful. You know? Hey, you're talking about baseball. I little joke for the morning. Let's talk snowballs. Well, no, no, no, no, don't don't slow up. Now. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. When it snowed. And we could make a snowball hard. We will some kind of a stick game out of that. Because baseball was so powerful in the thirties and the forties and the fifties and sixties and the seventies. And we didn't have all the modern things that we have today. Everybody didn't have a baseball bat. Everybody didn't have a baseball glove. Everybody didn't have a baseball. So we made do whatever we had. So when you raise snowball, which you get turned into like an ice ball. Let's hit it. Uh-huh. Extended the season to season early. Yes. Which ended up in November of March. Anyway, you know, you were talking earlier about, you know, some of the players in baseball might have missed the jackpot so to speak with. I was going to bring that up later, but you jump into it. And and let me just preface by saying this Joe to you and my radio listening audience. I often think about the climate of where we are today in sports and in life, the cost of living always goes up and never goes down. Certainly, right. And and with the richness of sport. Because of the advent of TV don't forget, I'm old before TV was formed. I was born the advent and the growth of TV and the fact that people and most case don't desire to go out on not intrigued and going out TV has become dominant. So therefore money has become dominant in sports through TV, and and outlets like that the business model changed revenue model so all all around a national brands so to speak or even regional brands could be not only that but it creates money. So now what I thought was just to have some conversation with you Joe you jumped an and others when they want to jump in. What would it would be? And I would I'm not going all the way. Back right now how much would junior Griffin. Griffin junior be able to make and today's baseball with all the greatness that he had and his era of plan. Ken Griffey junior. Exponential. Exponential. What would you say his market at of his career at the zenith of his career when he was with Seattle, and then decided to go to Cincinnati because of his father and wanted to be in that area and grew up in that area. He was on the market today. What do you think that Ken Griffey junior with command and demand from baseball? Well, I'm gonna put it this way right now because this is in the news is he worth three thirty or not for thirteen years. I guess that's the question. Thirty Ken Griffey junior and Brian. Yes, he would be worth in my opinion. He would over four hundred million or close to five hundred million dollars. Yeah. It's like where where where's where's the top? Whereas, yeah, I guess that would be setting the standard. And then from there will be get be set further down. But. Not everybody thinks they're Ken Griffey junior. So, you know, not not necessarily because I used junior Griffin. Griffin junior as an example. But later on I'm going to throw in the name, Joe de Majuro. Oh mickey. He's all those Aaron Frank Robinson. The Red Sox ROY Campanella. Jackie Robinson, gallons. Blue put it here. I I grew. I graduated in nineteen eighty my high school years free agency just came with what catfish hunter Joe Rudi. Good those. Good teams. They were dominant Jackson. They those goals were the first guys to cash in this whatever the seventy six seventy five Oakland as going to the New York Yankees. So I was thinking like Seaver was ending his career. He missed it. I was thinking dick Allen. He he missed it that there's two different people goody two shoes. Tom Seaver and dick Allen who was very colorful. Yeah. Think about if they would they would cash in on. That's what I I thought about it back in the seventies. Well, you know, the conversation that I think we can have from fantasy point of view is what we are. Now talking about Joe, and that is what would some of these greats from the pass, a STAN Musial it Ted Williams, and our K Line, and I'm only just naming a few and certainly you the radio listening audience can always say, well, this is one of two players that I think of and what would their market value be in today's market with the money being the way it is. And how those players if they were playing today would be able to cash in big time. It. It's it's it's a whole different game. It's literally what they call a game changer. Right. Yes. What it is that sort of mine too. How about the people that weren't allowed to play major league baseball who all the people in the knee ruling. Ooh. Orca.

We're Larry Doby who was the first black to play in American League with the Cleveland Indians to Jackie Robinson. What was I didn't? I didn't. I didn't bring those names in. But I would say to you in all honesty that if I said some of those names like a satchel page players like that they would be in the same stratosphere in terms of the money that they would command and remained in today's market. Yeah. They would draw crowds. I mean, just think of how much bigger the crowds. That was. Looted from a tender those games because players and vice versa. You know, black fans to a large degree didn't go to white baseball that much because they went to the negro league games in terms of what's going on. Yeah. How much did major league? Baseball miss out on a on on a marketing. What did they miss us? What branch Rickey phone about doing? What he did? He wires about jagged Robinson. It was about money. But I gotta go Joey I'm up against the commercials..
