The Black Man in Baseball

Randomly came across this very interesting post on Goodreads, about how, in the 19th Century, there were African-American baseball players in the major leagues.  “In fact, some 30 black players saw service in organized baseball in the last two decades of the 19th century”,  from 1872 to 1892. This is more than a lesson in history, it’s a lesson about history. In the immortal words of Jim Mora, “you think you know, but you don’t know, and you never will.”
