Meet the Baltimore Black Sox

Jarrett CarterAnalyst IJune 18, 2009

No, they aren’t former members of a road ramblin’ Negro league team. It’s a collection of local youth participating in the Mid-Atlantic Baseball Association.

Kevin Cowherd of the Baltimore Sun did a decent job of writing this story up, but I have to say, I could’ve done without the lazily-written headline of “Baltimore youth team exposes black kids to baseball.”

I also find it interesting that he didn’t dig deeper into the life of Sox assistant coach Tyrone Powers; a former FBI agent who wrote a book about racism in the bureau, used to host a local radio show before being phased out for new programming, and who made me stay late at work  a couple of times for wanting to come back on the air.
