"Today, there is no more ethnic or racial discrimination in baseball."

Normally, Mr. Lessenberry, I find your articles poignant and astute. But your shockingly optimistic statement above instead sounds ignorant, and makes me want to LOL. Just because a person's skin colour is no longer preventing them from participating in baseball (major league or otherwise), doesn't mean their skin colour isn't preventing them from participating in baseball. You can choose where to put the quotations in that sentence. Ya dig? ;) <--- (Ironic winky smiley.) In spite of this glaring misperception of reality, you'll probably remain my favourite commentator of Michigan politics.

Since African Americans and Latinos are proportionally more represented among baseball players than among the general population, I find it hard to see evidence of discrimination.
