HOW MANY BLACK UMPIRES WILL BE WORKING

YOUR BASEBALL WORLD CLASSIC

NONE ??

FADING IMAGE OF THE NEGRO LEAGUE UMPIRES

Another MLB Scam

that has ONLY been covered

in the Box

The scandalous lack of African American Umpires throughout MLB history right up to the Present. There have NEVER been more than 2 at any one time among the 69 MLB Umpires. Right now there are only 2.

What prompts this latest Box about Umpires

It appears that MLB Umpires will not work the brand new highly touted MLB World Baseball Classic in March because Commissioner Bud Selig and the Lily White Umpire Union “leadership” cannot come to an agreement about $$$.

Therefore

Major League Baseball intends to pick between 22-24 Minor League Umpires for the Classic. Which means control of the Selection is at the Discretion of Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig. So that unlike the situation if MLB Umpires were working the World Classic there could not be more than 2 African American Umpires because there are only 2 to choose from.

Granted part of the Umpire Scam

even Black Minor League Umpires

are few and far between but ..

There are a whole lot more than TWO. Maybe even a Dozen ! Nobody keeps precise count of such “unimportant” statistics. But if Selig thought it was important enough to Baseball as he should to right this egregious Wrong he can find and sign 8 – 10 African American Umpires to work the Classic which supposedly is all about making Baseball INCLUSIVE …..

Of course we don’t buy that Crock

( and our readers should thank us )

inclusiveness is a Dirty World

Bud Selig is clearly a Racist

WHAT ??

how can you write that

By any FAIR contemporary Definition. He has presided over Baseball for almost a Decade and with unprecedented Power being an owner himself for most of his Reign while over his Tenure there has been an precipitous Decline in the number of African Americans in Baseball …..

… as Bad as it was back in the early 1950s. Today just as then with most MLB teams with only 1 or 2 African American players and one with none !

And specifically to the Point

of today’s Box

There are exactly as many African American MLB Umpires today TWO as there were the day Bud Selig became Commissioner in 1998 when there were TWO Black Umpires in the Majors. Of a total of 69 MLB Umpires then and now.

If you don’t think

that is a “good” Definition of

Racism in the 21st century

that’s YOUR Problem

So what are you

going to do
