“[The Negro Leagues] played such a pivotal role in the social advancement of America that most people don’t know. It’s so much bigger than the game of baseball.”
Back by popular demand, and with updated information now that the MLB is recognizing the Negro Leagues as Major League! Bob Kendrick wows audiences with his multimedia presentation about the history of the Negro Baseball Leagues—how players got their start, how they were treated in the league, and how they integrated into major league baseball. Bob returns with more stories of how the Negro Leagues changed the game of baseball, and America, with a behind-the-scenes look at how MLB came to the decision to recognize the Negro Leagues as Major League, and how they will go about integrating stats and records.
