So great to see Major League Baseball making a decisive move towards actively seeking out minority players. As an organization that strives to build better futures for minority baseball players, this makes our hearts swell!

"I am told that it was two or three million years ago that our ancestors started walking on two feet, and that is when they started swinging clubs and throwing stones to catch an animal, to hit an enemy. It is no accident that games like golf and baseball are popular around the world. It is in our DNA to like to go WHACK. I like to split wood, it is fun.”
