Percentage Of Black Baseball Players Drops Again

36

"The percentage of black players in the major leagues dropped again on opening day this year even as the sport again received a top overall grade for racial diversity."(AP) Considering that the Giants don't have an African American on their regular 25 man roster, it's hard to imagine guys like Mays and Mccovey who represent nationally the Giants organization and black American players in general, not speaking up about it. I think the situation sort of crimps their style. Darren Ford's on the team right now but he'll surely get sent down when Andres Torres is healthy enough to play again. It would be nice if Marc Kroon is promoted later on in the season as he pitched very well in spring training. Hopefully, Thomas Neal is for real and gets the outfield job next season.
