Keep in mind Jeter wouldn't be able to play either
idk what's so hard to understand about that. Dezz made it a race thing...but it's not....its about an innaccurate sample size.
There was nothing like Roberto Clemente who was just about the best player I ever saw.
Baseball in the early years was restricted and therefore all the best players weren't playing. And now its all about power and hitting HR's and no one can throw a baseball for God's sakes. Everyone is jacked. The art of baseball is dead.
You can make the same statement for any sport. The players have it easier today with scouting reports, trainers, peds. Id be surprised if the babe knew what a dumbbell was. It IS indeed a race thing. That was the whole point of Toshs joke, thinking black people dominate baseball, but he was wrong.
Some of the best baseball players of that time were NOT ALLOWED to play. MLB was a restricted league.
How is it you're not getting this.
