      It contains anomalies. In his book Moneyball, finance author Michael Lewis relates the story of how Oakland A’s General Manager Billie Bean managed to game the system of baseball using statistics and information, which ultimately resulted in his underpaid team of misfits winning 20 games in a row, which is tied for third longest win streak of all-time. Today, Negroes play on every big league club and in every minor league. With millions of other Negroes in other walks of life, we are willing to stand up and be counted for what we believe in. In baseball or out, we are no longer willing to wait until Judgment Day for equality - we want it .

      Baseball is passing down an American legacy, reinforcing family love, teaching values and a way of life, sharing joy and triumph, sorrow and defeat. Baseball can illustrate and enhance the meaning in our lives. Baseball is only a distant cousin to organized games, all star tournaments, or names appearing in the local sports pages.   BOOK RIOT | Book Recommendations and Reviews.

    Baseball Poetry & Baseball Songs Poems About Baseball & Songs About Baseball.
