Now that basketball season is over, we are 100% into baseball season. Training camps for football don’t start for another month and the preseason games won’t start until a couple of weeks after that. So for 6 weeks it is baseball only (the WNBA is not a sport).
This baseball season has been pretty exciting, but my question is does the African-American community care? I’m a big sports fan and watch at least part of a MLB game everyday, but I am finding that less and less Black people are playing and watching the game. I think that it’s a shame because baseball provides certain things that no other sport does.
For those who may be behind I will do a quick refresher course on the season so far so that you catch up and start watching the games. The 1st place teams in the American League are the Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In the National League teams in 1st place are the Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB All-Star Game is on July 14th.
My question again is do you care about baseball?
