Baseball, History, Baseball Facts
Since Babe Ruth joined the New York Yankees in the 1920s, America has been intrigued with baseball sluggers and teams that stuff the middle of their batting order with power. Even today, sports fans flip to ESPN to see who hit the dingers of the day. Yes, we like to see great catches and outstanding pitching performances, but it’s the home runs we live for. The 1960s was a decade of some of the greatest slugging combinations in baseball history. From Maris and Mantle to McCovey and Mays, the decade’s memories will live forever!
Join Celebrity On-Air Host Jonathan Aldridge talking ALL THINGS BASEBALL, with Ex Major League Pitchers Rusty Meacham & Dewon Day, Former Minor League Manager Benny Castillo, Former Players, Scott Dermer and Die-Hard Basball Fan Rachel Roth.

Fewer African-Americans are playing in Major League Baseball today than two decades ago. The percentage was 8.5 percent on this season's Opening Day rosters.
Commissioner Bud Selig announced on Wednesday the formation of a task force to tackle the issue of on-field diversity.
New data, though, demonstrates that the decline in African-America players, while steep, isn't as precipitous as widely believed. The accepted wisdom is that the high-water mark was reached in 1975, when it was reported that 27 percent of big leaguers were African-Americans. But exhaustive research by Mark Armour, a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, shows that the actual number never exceeded 19 percent.
"To be fair, the numbers have dropped,'' said Armour. "I believe the numbers have dropped from 18-19 percent, which is what they were for about two decades.
"From the 1970s through the '90s, the numbers were in the high teens. Now they're half that," said Armour, who writes software for the Environmental Protection Agency.
"What I determined, and I [analyzed data from 1947, when Jackie Robinson made his debut] up to 1986 ... is that the number never got to 20 percent. The black-player number, counting all dark-skinned players, was in the high 20s for a period. But not the African-American number. All the press stuff that comes out every April compares the African-American numbers from today with the all-black-players number from the '70s. And that's where they make their mistake."
Tonight we will do a mid-week podcast featuring our own Bake McBride Fantasy Baseball discussion. We will be discussing some current rankings and projections that have come out from some of our members and basically talking about how retarded they are for said rankings.
