I work with high school players 3 times a week. About 40 players that come from 2 or 3 school get skills training on all facets on the game from 2 other instructors and myself.
Last week we met a guy who stopped by the field because he’d seen us in weeks prior to ask if we would talk to him regarding his grad thesis – the black baseball player. Basically highlighting the lack there of. I agreed and thought it was a coincidence. I wrote my thesis in undergrad at Pomona on the demographics of baseball over the last 50 years – Latino was the new Black.
I haven’t met with him yet but I thought that was pretty cool. I’ll share what I can if we ever connect.
