    And minorities...id guess that around 70% of baseball is a race other than white.

    Odd

    So he wants baseball destroyed but he then gives the Red Sox his money? That's a good jumping off point.

    And what the hell is the dude talking about? Baseball was the first major professional sport to integrate African American and other minorities.

    It amazes me how many people who may have a worthy cause (in this case racism being wrong) have no idea the venue in which to protest.

    The Yankees/Rays was ridiculous going to Citi Field personally, especially with the hotel thing. So we give one team in the WC hunt a leg up due to hotels? The Orioles were ready and willing to host, and it's not like Baltimore is short of any hotels.
    Brewers said MLB called them yesterday asking if they can host the series and that there was no talk of relocating to a different town. They were planning on playing in Miami but they still don't have power. I'm guessing it's because it's such short notice that teams couldn't get the staff in place etc

    From what I understood they chose a baseball game cause of it's national past time status and ability to reach audience. I don't think it was necessarily an attack at baseball itself rather then use it as their platform.

    The banner was poorly worded for the point he wants to make, the ESPN hosts early this morning thought the protesters were white supremacists.

    I felt like everyone did.

    Was well thought through.

    They said they wanted to destroy baseball and create a sport where not only minorities can play but women as well.

    Dumb idea. They should be kept separate. Men are naturally bigger, stronger, faster and in turn would physically dominate women in most sports.
    Things like golf, tennis, swimming, skiing are examples where I believe co-ed would work just fine tho

    I honestly don't see how a woman can't develop the skills to be a top level baseball player. Never have, in fact.

    I was on a coed high school ski team in the 60's, some of the races were coed and some were split.

    Yeah, I'm not sure if I'm even comprehending the double negatives there correctly.

    I don't believe women are physically incapable of being premier baseball players
