Red Sox got rained out! I'm pretty mad, I was looking forward to Ortiz and Coco (and whoever else) wearing the historic and retired Number 42. Since they were rained out, I was NOT able to see this.
Did anyone enjoy the day?
Also, some of the sports talk is about how there are fewer African Americans in baseball now than there were in the 60's. How can we entice more to play the game? My understanding is, it's easier to hand any kid a basketball or football and let them go. Baseball is more organized and requires more equipment to get a game going. I think all parks and camps should have all the baseball equipment available for everyone so they can play baseball if they like.
Baseball is the greatest sport in my mind, and I want EVERYONE to enjoy it, not just a select few. I understand you can't force someone to play something they have no interest in, but is there any way we can get more children of ALL races to play this wonderful sport?
