CSB national news recently aired a tribute to legendary player Jackie Robinson. In that report on Sunday afternoon it was revealed the number of African Americans playing professional baseball has dramatically declined over the last 30 years. Statistics show in the 70’s African Americans made up 27% of the players in professional baseball while that number is 8% today. In the tag of the report the anchor said The Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros are the only teams in the country to have no African American players. The question I guess I have after seeing that national report is should The Astros make more of an effort to recruit Blacks on their team? Or should it matter? Leave your comments here on The Insite!
