The Decline of Urban Baseball

The number of African Americans in baseball peaked at 175 amongst 25 teams back in 1975. Today, there are 90 spread across 30 teams. Putting aside the fact this article by James Harris quotes both Joe Morgan and Charles Barkley (not two of my favorite statesmen), “Baseball? That Ain’t Hood” is still an interesting read.
