__________Interestingly I just heard yesterday that the number of Blacks playing baseball is in major decline to something like 7% down from around 20% in the 60's-80's."
yon, for at least a couple of decades now, baseball has very much been a non-existant sport in African American (Descendants of black American slaves) "communities" throughout the United States.
It is not due to major league baseball teams not reaching out to African Americans "communities".
It is due to African Americans greatly losing interest in baseball.
For at least of couple of decades now, African Americans who are going into sports when they are young, exclusively start off into these 2 respective sports.---
2. American football.
If African American youth don't start off their youth going into baskeball or footbal.---- They also go into these venues.----
3. They start rapping at a young age. Hoping to become a rapper with a record deal. Primarily hoping to get signed to a major record label.
4. Or, when they are at a young age, they enter into a life of crime. Primarily in a gang.
Their criminal career, especially as a drug dealer.
