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!
A change of pace this week for you. This week's episode of the RINO Hour of Power will be devoted to previewing the 2015 Major League Baseball season.

The show streams live from 8:00 - 9:00 PM Eastern time. A podcast will be available shortly after the end of the show.

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, Ken Collins will talk about his attempt to become Major League Baseball (MLB) Ambassodor for Brain Injury Prevention and Recovery. Ken has been an active participant in developing community-based servcies for people with brain injuries since 1983 and as a VISTA Volunteer helped to create the first transitional living program in the US for people with brain injuries. The award winning Uhlhorn Apartments opened it's doors in 1990 and remains one of the most cost effective programs in the US to provide brain injury independent living services. Ken has been active with brain injury prevention and awareness activities since becoming a founding member of the Oregon Head Injury Foundation in 1985. He has held many positions over the years with city, county, state and national organizations educating people about the consequences of brain injury. He is currently Vice-Chair of the New Mexico Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) and Program Manager at the San Juan Center for Independence-Gallup office where he provides independent living services and peer support to people/vets with brain injuries in McKinley County. MLB recently created the Ambassodor for Inclusion and asked former minor league baseball player Billy Bean to take on this responsibility. FOX Sports reported: Billy Bean was in Portland, Ore., when he got the call. Not the kind of call he once received as a minor-league outfielder, summoning him to the majors. No, a call that was even more significant, the first step toward baseball welcoming Bean, a publicly gay man, back to its family.
Efforts that marked a natural if belated progression for the sport of Jackie Robinson, efforts that led to Bean being named baseball’s ambassador for inclusion on July 15. Bean, 50, had retired from baseball after the 1995 season.
Oh yes America's past time is going to get some love from the "It's All About The Game Show!" Now is the time of the baseball season when teams are beginning to show what they are all about. We will take a look at each division and provide a complete breakdown along with who we believe will be there at the end of the year to play in the ALCS and the NLCS. All of this of course leads up to the Fall Classic that is the World Series; the biggest stage for Major League Baseball.
As we get closer to the beginning of spring training, there are notions to take away as you go forward. Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explores a few on this show.
