"Rob. This is how people are managing today. It's also not a small sample, by the way, it's 10 seasons that he's been in the playoffs. 89 6013 14 15 16 17 18 1920, So it's not like four bad starts is the reason why he has a big yard. It's 177 innings. It's basically a whole year. He's been in the postseason and he's got a 478431 or I am not bad. I am not it. I am not here to argue. Okay, I am not. Sorry. Lori carried away. I mean, you just had to get in that. Not good. I mean, like you just had that I'm gonna get booed on here to talk to you guys. I'm not here to argue on behalf of Clayton Kershaw today lose an argument with Boo because he's going to be throwing Bob bebop W Plus our two details and all this stuff that no one's ever heard. I was like, Okay, fine tonight. Baseball. You win, but who we are is 4.78. Okay, but what I'm telling you about, and you know this Billy the way the baseball is managed A. You could take this up with courage and people know baseball better than I do. But the way that it has managed today, there was literally still gots literally a guy last night who came out of the Astrosbullpen whose name was scrub His last name is scrub. He's just another scrub. What he threw was a breaking ball like Bligh, Levin and 97. That's the guy that every bullpen is bringing in now in the 6th and 7th inning, because tired starters aren't the way we're going anymore, like that's not what they're doing in that. I understand that. But when you're Clayton Kershaw and everyone calls you the greatest starting pitcher to ever pitch in Major League baseball, you have to do with the other greats have done in the postseason. Go out and give your team Team eight or nine innings. That's what you have to get. I don't care how baseball is being managed today. That's what the greats have done forever, and that's what Kershaw needs to do, and he can't do it. He's not capable of doing it. Hang tough, buddy. What do you think? Satchel Paige would save his manager. You're pitching five innings today wants anything because he's been dead for many years about Kony. Alright, well, you could take it up. You're arguing with someone who doesn't want to argue with you. He wasn't good last night, and he hasn't been good in the postseason. It does feel like you're arguing about late defendant. Very good fraud. Not very good, Not very good fraud. You seem to be rejecting that which means you're tired of hearing it for 50 times while I'm trying to speak. That's fair. This is the best of the Dan Lebatard show..

That's that space. What great rich baseball history. I'm so glad that you could talk about it today, and I know we only have, like 30 seconds left, but very briefly your thoughts of the last two nights very briefly. I did the World Series back in one camp. The Yankees against Young young Kim hit game tying home runs in the ninth inning, two nights in a row. And so it kind of brought me back to that, and the Yankees ended up winning both of those ballgames and extra innings. But this was you know how many times have we seen the clothes? You have a real bad game, and then they just want to get him back out there as soon as possible to get rid of all the bad feeling the bad taste in his mouth and go have some success. And then the same thing happens again. But it also gave capital pointed out on his show's still to come money that the jacks never really have anointed a closer They haven't had a closer they've had guys that, especially Trevor God. That have done well in that role, but he's never been told that you're the closer. That's your job.

This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies in for Terry. Gross. Baseball is back. For now at least and many major league teams this year are celebrating the 1/100 anniversary of the Negro leagues. Which gave African Americans a place to showcase their talents before the game was integrated. Today will listen to my interview with author Larry Tye about a man some believe was the greatest pitcher who ever lived. Leroy Satchel Paige. It's said that his fastball in his prime was so terrifying. Some opposing batters called in sick. In the 19 forties, Ty writes. No one was better known or more beloved among black Americans, not Joe Louis, not Count Basie or Duke Ellington because Satchel was unstoppable on the mound and because he played and lived with such style and charm. Central Page played his best seasons before baseball was integrated, so he didn't get the years and records in the big leagues he might have. But he's in the Hall of Fame that holds the record for being the oldest player ever to throw a pitch in the majors at age 59. Larry Tye says there's another story in satchels, rich and colorful life about race in America and how satchels barnstorming through American towns brought black and white fans and players together long before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier. Guy's biography is called Satchel. The Life and Times of an American legend. Larry Tye. Welcome back to fresh air. I thought we might begin by asking you to just pay a little bit of a picture of Satchel Paige in his prime if someone went to the ballpark Say in the thirties, when he really had his career. Going? Just give us a little bit of a sense of sort of what they would see what made him distinctive and special. Before the game even started. Everybody knew that you wanted to come out early and watch Satchel and what you wanted to watch Wass he would set up on home plate a set of matches. And he'd set up this tiny little matchbook and he proceed to throw eight out of 10 pitches directly over the book. Some days, it might have been a postage stamp. Some days, it might have been a gum wrapper. It was tiny objects, and he did that for two reasons. One was to delight fans, and it always delighted fans, and they always showed up early to watch him do something like that. The other was he knew that opponents whether it was a Negro League team or local barnstormers, who had never seen him before. We're there early as well. They knew this was the legendary satchel Paige and they were watching what he was doing, and when you watched him Burn these fastballs in with this pinpoint accuracy that he could actually get it directly over a book of matches. It started giving you precisely the second thoughts that Satchel knew these shows would do so he was somebody you came early to watch. And you always got the show before the show. His walk to the mound was even distinctive. Right? Itwas he actually did. What was More like a shuffle than a walk. He knew that the game couldn't start until he got there. And he was darn well going to take his time getting there again, letting fans absorb this magic of this guy who had arms so long that it looked like they were touching the ground. Who had legs so long that he had to take a really large steps just to avoid tripping over his own legs and who was distinctive and elegant enough that anybody who watched Had to pay attention and had to be struck by him. And his his wind up and delivery was like no one else is to write. It was indeed it was the famous satchel Paige pose, which was winding up. You could be a single a double or a triple windmill wind up and imagine what windmill does turning over and over. Satchel could pitch underhanded. He could pitch side arm and he could pitch his standard overhand. Whatever he was doing. It looked like his leg went so high up into the air that had blacked out the sky. His arm was so long that it looked like it was in the pictures face by the time he released the ball, and he had a kind of catapult release. That that sent the ball in its speeds that people they had no radar guns then, but that people said had to be at least 100 to 105 miles an hour. So amazing athlete, but a real performer and almost a circus act. Yeah, a circus act that understood that there was a thin line between entertaining a crowd and demeaning himself, and he would never take it to the point where he was doing anything to demean himself. But he also understood that Negro League baseball with something that to attract fans, and he attracted extraordinary numbers of fans record numbers of fans to attract fans. He had to be more than just a brilliant picture. You had to be showman as well. He was as sensational a showman. As I've ever seen, or read or heard about in the entire game of baseball, But let's talk about his early life he was born. What, 1906 Is that the established now that is the establishment is actually born on July 7th, 1996 in Mobile, Alabama coastal city where it's and it's interesting that you describe in the book that was a place of considerable racial tolerance and before the turn of the century, but but became a hard bitten and segregated place. Tell us a little about about kind of his his family in early life. Sure, he was one of 12 Children. He was the seventh of 12 Children in his early life was a situation where his dad was almost never around his dad with somebody who liked to call himself a landscaper. And what he in fact was Was a gardener and generally an unemployed gardener. His mom was a washerwoman who took in laundry from white families across mobile and tried to make a living, but with 12 miles to feed, and with no real help from her husband. His mom had a really difficult time. So all the kids from a very early age we're taught that they had to a get usedto having nothing and B for whatever they did have in terms of food or anything else. They had to go out and earn it themselves and he was out there. At the age of 9 10 11 at the railway station, doing things that a red cap would do. He was actually pulling people's bags. He was collecting a dime or 1/4 per bag. And that's where his name Satchel came from. He had discovered a system that he could use pulleys and ropes to carry 23 Sometimes even four bags at a time, and the way that he talked about where his name came from was that friends looked at it and said, You look like a walking satchel tree and the name stuck immediately. But as with everything with him, there were three or four versions of the story. There are also stories that you found of his skill at hurling things, even as a young kid, and that sort of brings up something that you wrote him, too. I'm sure again and again when you're researching his life is that that? He did such prodigious things at a time when there weren't the kind of records and videos and Internet stuff that there are now two document them. It must be hard. Two separate legend from fact, But But what did you come to believe about what he'd done as a kid that proved that proved he had an amazing arm. I came to believe that the stories that people told enough of them came from his friends who are eye witnesses and even taking account for all the embellishment Satchel did and other people did. I think he had an extraordinary ability. To aim a rock or a brick or a baseball and get it to its target with the kind of speed that was just beyond the pale. One of the things that he was able to do. As a kid was with Iraq. He was able to at the distance of a pitching mound knocked down a chicken. He was able to hit a square old. He was able to do extraordinary things, but he was best and he really showed his skills as a young boy. When he was part of a group of kids who live near him, and they'd take on rival gangs of kids and Satchel was famous not just for being able to hit the kid just where he wanted to, but in developing something that became his style when he became a picture later on what he called the hesitation pitch. If you were looking at the kids who you were trying to have this rock throwing contest with and if you threw the rocket them.

He also wanted somebody who was cheap and Satchel was demanding the kinds of dollars rookie didn't WanNa.

But then finally, Satchel gets his chance at the age of forty two bill the owner of the Cleveland Indians signs him to a contract after all these years how did he measure up in the Big Leagues? Well I want just give you a couple numbers. Baseball is all about numbers and Satchel pitched for half a season. He helped take the Indians to the pennant and eventually they won the world series that year he ended up with a six one record, which was the highest percentage of wins of anybody on that pennant winning staff on the Indians he had an earned run average of two point, four seven, which is extraordinary in these days or any day it's extraordinarily low, which means that you score only two point four, seven runs on average for every nine innings pitched, which means you're giving your your team a chance to win every time you're out there. That was the second best era in the entire American league and at age forty two, he actually won twelve votes from Associated Press. Writers as rookie of the year.

Dakota. Maybe a handful Satchel came in and was extraordinary. He did exactly what this Guy Churchill had wanted. He led the Bismarck team to an extraordinary number of victories particularly over this nearby town, Jamestown North Dakota and Satchel was not the first Negro League go to Bismarck but he was the one who brought attention of the Negro Leagues of the National Press in of everybody else to what was going on in these far away communities that was great baseball happening in out of the way parts of America and there was great integrated baseball happening a decade and more before the major leagues ever became integrated it was part of. For him it was a way of earning money for the country as a way of testing out how integration might look on a ball field long before the major league owners were ready to integrate their teams and how did it work? How did he get along with his white teammates? How did the white fans in? Bismarck react to him. He was extraordinary everybody in Bismarck. Knew Him. He was a celebrity in town he started out. Having no idea how people would really react to him and he actually when he first came to town, he head to rent out an old box car that was on the side of the railroad tracks as a place to live because finding housing was a really difficult thing for him to do.

His fame grew and as this barnstorming these sort of ad hoc games and you know and and tourists, which would would pit him sometimes against white teams or local teams grew. He ended up getting some some white major leaguers involved collaborating on some of some of these barnstorming tours. How did how did that happen? It happened with I with. Dizzy Dean was the most famous of the Great White star.

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

Charles Ross is director of African American Studies at the University of Mississippi they play out of Harlem. He was the coach of that team. And ultimately he really wanted for them. Showcase their talents, and potentially apply pressure to NFL owners to have to answer as to why black players were not on these NFL rosters to say hey, you know we're pretty successful. We're very competitive against these proteins. How come the arguing this opportunity to play in the National Football League? Fritz Pollard the third says they were more than competitive. The Brown bombers were twenty nine and oh. Never lost a game. Their talent was just so incredible. It had been sometimes team Steven. Towns agrees they were beating some of the pro teams so badly that they had the whole the score down because they were afraid that they weren't going to play them anymore, so it was a little bit more than an exhibition game when you gotTa white players that point in time playing black players, it meant something. The Brown bombers folded in nineteen, thirty, eight, one of the many casualties of the Great Depression. It's hard to know exactly how much pressure Pollard's barnstorming team put.

"Went through several spools of microfilm eventually, though I found the actual edition of the paper that had the box score. Of The game that my dad caught, what was it like to see his name there? Oh my Gosh I was I was just overjoyed. They took cell phone pictures of it. A printed out some blurry copy of it I couldn't get over the fact that I'd actually found the object of a search that had started essentially in nineteen sixty four. Phil found evidence. That suggests Cy Perkins was a last minute scratch, but nothing else. That would explain why. His father played for the House of David That day all he could find a box score and a few months of copy about the seventeen strikeouts page through that night, but remember bill has a lot of experience reading a box score and imagining a baseball game. Would have been a nice warm evening and August I saw that in the newspaper weather. It was being played eight thirty at night. Merchants Park, which means they were under the lights. And I know that stadium lights were this harsh glinting kind of blue light. So, I imagine what that must have been like. There is six thousand people in the stands, and my dad would have clicked on the shin guards, chest protector and pulled on the mask, and he's taking a few warm pitches for Satchel page and I just imagine how that would have popped in his glove, and how it would have stung. Dad Was Oh for four that night. Hitting assures left-hander. Swollen. Swollen so badly, he probably felt he was swinging the bat. With one hand fill wrote down the story of Satchel page the House of David and the day George lease played in a game of real historical significance. He bound into a book and presented it to his family, and I just wanted them to have a connection to their father, a grandfather into a time and a place in the baseball game. That was a magical moment, but while the number of people connected to George Lisa's story grows with every new generation. The same can't be said of Benjamin personnels. Followers personnel forbade them from procreating and promised that they never die when Cristiano met them. The last remaining house of David, ball players.

"Is the author of Satchel, the life and times of an American legend. Larry thank you for being with US great to be with you I'd like you to. Of course, the name setup as caught my interest and I was listening attentively. And then. Larry Tighe began speaking of a tournament in Denver the Denver Post Tournament. And in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, this was a watershed year for the tournament, because it was the first time that the Negro Leagues were invited to play on a competitive basis, not just as an exhibition team, the first and highest profile interracial faceoff, maybe ever in the world in the baseball world. The Negro Leagues were represented by the Kansas City. Monarchs often remembered as Satchel pages team, but as the listened, he learned that page didn't pitch for the monarchs in that tournament he was coming in with a team from this group called the House of David with all of a sudden then for me everything to. Sprang back into life, because all in a single sentence I had Satchel page, a house of David and Denver. My father was a resident of Georgetown Colorado just up the hill. Phil immediately went out and bought. Larry Ties Book. He hoped it would lead to more details about that game. His father caught for Satchel page. Maybe even the box score. But there's an even bigger mystery here. How did the greatest Negro League pitcher of all time end up on the mound for religious cult from Michigan well, the short answer is that the House of David signed a lot of famous ball players to short term contracts babe, Ruth even played for them in a game or two for the longer answer. We need to go back to Chris Syria. No Chris has spent the past thirty years researching the House of David interviewing, members and collecting. He runs his own museum. The House of David Baseball Museum Chris says team was good enough to play in the major leagues, but part of their belief was. That could never shave or cut their hair. The major leagues wouldn't let them play Major League Baseball, because you had to be clean, shaven so the Negro. Leagues invited them to play with them because they can play in the major leagues because they are black, so they teamed up together, and they traveled the country in the late nineteen twenty s all the way through roughly thousand, nine, hundred forty, and the team that the House of David would most often travel with was the Kansas City monarchs? There's this one story Chris loves to tell about those days he heard it from Lloyd Gallagher, a house of David member who played from nineteen, twenty six through nineteen forty. They would travel into buses. He said when we only pulled into tone with one bus. The other bus Lloyd said would wait while Lloyd, his father, and another house of David Player marched into the baseball manager's office and said Mr Manager were happy to be here in your tone, and we're excited and you're gonNA love us. Here's the deal sir. The men would explain that before they played their game. Game that day the Kansas City. Monarchs were going to take the field never before. Have you even allow them into your stadium? Much less your town and but sir, they're gonNA put on a show, and after that we're gonNA play, and then after the games come to the restaurant with us that we always go to, and we've booked rooms in the hotel that we always stay at and if you can't make all that happen Sir. The next town pastures is on rain. Check so it's fine. If you can't make all this happen, we're just GONNA leave and keep going. The. Room would get silent. Sometimes these managers would throw things. They Punch the wall. They'd scream at us or you know. Leave the room and slam the door and he said we just stand there. As Lloyd told Chris Every time. The baseball manager would come back and say that the monarchs would be allowed to play, but that the house of David should never expect to be invited back again, but he said guess waitress when the Kansas City. Monarchs took the field in started playing baseball. Their fans were. Were amazed and they laughed and they cheered in at the end of the game. There would be a huge standing ovation for how awesome these monarchs were, and he said guess what Chris. Next year they invited US both back so while it might seem strange. That Satchel page was on the mound for the House of David when they beat the Kansas. City monarchs in the championship game of that Nineteen thirty four Denver Post Tournament these two teams had a long history of working together to inspire baseball fans. But that to our other mystery, phillies had spent forty five years wondering when and where his father might have caught for Satchel page. Could this tournament be the answer? Fills research led him to the Microfilm archives at his local library. I.

"That Satchel page page spent most of his. In the Negro Leagues not signing his rookie MLB contract until the age of forty two, he kept his own records and made the extraordinary claim that he pitched one hundred. No hitters over his career on the other hand fills Dad George was an amateur who played for a town team. George lease died when Phil was just seventeen and Phil never got the chance to ask his dad for details, Lake Win, or where the game was played or why George subbed in for pages regular catcher Cy Perkins. Little spare on details to be sure but he. Always point out the fact that sat so page through with incredible velocity, and that his hand had puffed up, your had swollen about an inch thicker than his normal size George, also told his sons about his teammates from the House of David, they had long bushy beards and hair that went down past their shoulder blades, but there was never any more details until much much later, two, thousand nine to be exact. But before we get to that, we need to meet another young boy in another small town. Yada I grew up in Benton harbor. Michigan, and when he was young, his parents took him to a place called the House of David Amusement Park it was such a cool experience to go there on Sunday after Church and walk up to the big train depot where you. Got Ice Cream cone, and probably on a waffle cone which invented. You had to board the train to get back into their music park, which is about a half a mile in? Did you have any idea that there was this strange religion attached to all of this I had no clue. After Kris came home from college with a degree in history, he thought it might be fun to tackle a local research project. That's when he first learned about the people behind that amusement park. The House of David was formed by Benjamin Mary. No, they they were from Kentucky Paducah. Kentucky and they traveled the Midwest as itinerant preachers in eighteen nineties in a covered wagon. He thought he was the brother to Christ, and the son of God and Messiah. Win Benjamin and Mary arrived in Benton Harbor in. In the fall of nineteen two, they met up with two wealthy businessman named Luis an Albert Bausch, and as it turned out, the Bosch Brothers were searching for the Messiah, so they agreed to join his cause, and they've donated over four hundred thousand dollars in cash, which is millions probably tens of millions today. Benjamin preached that his presence signaled the end of days, but he said his followers would never die. They live in paradise on earth in exchange for that promise you give them everything you own. Soon thousands of new followers started arriving from all over the world they turn over their belongings and Benjamin. Cornell would create for them the perfect new job and that's how he ended up starting a baseball team I think he just decided that there was a whole lot of teenage boys and guys in their early twenties with a whole lot of pinup energy, because they also live to celebrate society,.

Doodo mobster good start like my lawn is looking really good like I cut around the edges. All the things in the past where I get back from Sunday night baseball and Monday and I'd be tired and I'd see some clipping that I need to do and I wouldn't do it now. Like up at five in the morning just dying for that. I like to get out and do it so trying to make the best of it so you got you know. Murder Mystery Zoom.

You can find it wherever you get your podcasts numbers game. They're laying say reporter producer for MLB DOT COM. And Sarah in a moment. We're GONNA be talking about Kendrick head of the Negro Leagues Museum in Baseball Museum in Kansas City. And so Sarah what I sent you an email over the weekend saying you know what? I'm curious about your perspective on who or the Five Best Negro Leagues players of all time. How would you rank them? Starting with number five. Yeah so I love looking into this and I love thinking about this because you know this is an area of baseball history that we don't know quite as much about and I know I personally have learned a lot about maybe over the last ten years or so but I feel like I'm always learning more and more about these players in reading more of these legends so it was a great great opportunity to dig back into this and I love it so my number five is Oscar Charleston. And you know they're so many great comparisons when you read about these players. Everybody is compared to some absolute legend and the one that I have for Oscar Charleston. Buck O'Neil said. He was the greatest player that he ever saw. He was compared to tie Cobb interest speaker and he was considered the Negro National in Israel. I real- superstar back in nineteen twenty and he could hit close to four hundred played a great outfield. Iran. Base while and Satchel page side. You have to see him to believe him anyway. And so the hall of fame in Nineteen Seventy six and of course buck. O'neil was a longtime first baseman and a manager and he we scout. He's got it later in life. There's actually an award at the hall of fame given every year now That's name for Buck O'Neil. Whose NUMBER FOUR. So number four. I've got cool Papa. Bell you know legendary speed one story. I saw said that he went from home home. In twelve seconds which is really fun. You know we can actually contextualized that now whether or not it's true we don't know but you know the fact that people thought that was true. I mean that's right there with the fastest home-to-home times who see on home runs you know now a stack cast so and he taught. Lubar have a steel basis. I think that almost tells you all you need to know in humans. The Hall of fame in Nineteen Seventy four and cool papa. Bell of course. The great story about said tongue in cheek was that he was so fast when he turned off the lights which he'd be back under the covers before the late actually went out. Who's number three so number? Three is Buck Leonard. He was the homestead grays first base for seventeen years which made him the longest tenure player with one team in the entire history of the Negro Leagues. He Josh Gibson were outstanding. Duo led the team to nine Negro nationally pennants and five world series. Aaron says and he went to the hall of fame in Nineteen. Seventy two number. Two number. Two is Josh Gibson so dizzy Dean called him. One of the best that he ever saw it for a ton of power. The legends are absolutely incredible. They talk about five hundred foot home runs and maybe he hit nine. Hundred home runs in his career. We don't know you know for sure. But he certainly was. You know an absolute outstanding catcher an outstanding a power hitter and he wins the hall of fame in Nineteen. Seventy two as well number one all time. So Am I number one. I have sexual page. I'm not sure that he was the absolute best player in the history of the Negro Leagues. But I think he is certainly the most famous on so I was sort of going back and forth between him Gibson whose number one number two I ended up with Satchel page number one. He was the first to go into the hall of fame. He's the most associated with the league. I think a lot of ways and you know a lot of people thought he was the greatest pitcher whoever left and I want to ask you about the greatest player of all time in any league for me. It's always been willie. Mays who to me? He did so many things well he was fast. He could play defense. He hit for power. He won the Most Valuable Player in the National League. A couple of times Led the League in a home runs multiple times. He won a batting title in One Thousand. Nine hundred fifty four. It's six hundred. Sixty homers had three thousand two hundred eighty three hits scored over two thousand runs in his career. That would be my pick for greatest player of all time. How about you? Yeah I mean I you. I have talked about many times on here. My mother grew up a huge giant. Stand a huge giant fan. Let's hear about Willie mays since I you know basically couldn't talk yet and I've always always default to him but I will say that you know as I learn more and more about these Negro Leagues players. I mean I do think that you know there are so many players who you hear that you know could have been the greatest of all time or would have been considered the greatest of all time in major league history. Had they gotten the chance to play their gotten a chance to play. They're in their prime. So I think that there certainly are You know other considerations to take but I always go slowly mace yes. Some people would argue Babe Ruth. Some people would argue Henry Aaron. I'm going to put that question of Bob in just a moment. Sarah thanks for doing this. Always great to talk with you. Basis for having me investor. Kendrick is President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. Missouri and Bob. Thanks for joining us. Sit at time when everybody's looking for distraction and I know you've got a lot of stories always exciting for me because I'm looking forward to those same distracting about these baseball and baseball history because the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum like everybody else has been so greatly impacted by the health situation that we're currently.
