Luther Campbell: Baseball Replaces Blacks With Dominicans

Campbell v. Acuff: Round 2.

April means Major League Baseball’s opening day, which gets me thinking about the media firestorm Los Angeles Angels center fielder Torii Hunter ignited last month when he called players from the Dominican Republic “imposters.” This reflected his opinion that dark-skinned Latin American major leaguers shouldn’t be counted as blacks. He’s right.

...How do the Florida Marlins manage to field a competitive team and keep the payroll low? Because the club has one of the best farm systems in Major League Baseball. They can get top-of-the-line Dominican players at a bargain price.

What Major League Baseball needs to do is reintroduce the sport to African-American children. Let’s not forget the Negro Baseball League played a very important part of African-American people’s history. I played it as a kid at Flamingo Park in Miami Beach. When I started the Liberty City Optimist Club, we had the kids playing baseball before football. In fact, the club is one of the oldest African-American Little League teams in Florida. You would think the Marlins would do their research and support a program like that, but they don’t.

Even at the high school level, there is no effort to generate interest in baseball among teenage black boys. The owners need to put the resources in the inner cities because baseball is a beautiful sport.

But that is not in the plans. The plan is to eliminate black Americans and replace them with Dominicans.

To be fair, people don't generally write "there is no racism in baseball" articles that can be posted (unless you wanna start trolling white power sites, I suppose.)

But yeah, the 2 Live Crew guy shockingly doesn't seem to have a very good analysis of the situation, which would hopefully be the main criteria.

I absolutely agree with this, and I doubt there's anyone on this site that feels differently.

But that is not in the plans. The plan is to eliminate black Americans and replace them with Dominicans.

This is pretty clearly not true, regardless of the existence of racism in society. It's simply that there's less incentive to invest in player development in an area where the draft is in effect, for the obvious reason that you'll be spending resources on someone who won't end up on your club.

Are white kids suddenly bargains too? I don't doubt that teams are investing more in Latin America...perhaps because those players are cheaper, but that is at the expense of both black and white American kids.

Was there a super-concentrated effort prior to the modern era of declining black involvement, or is the same normal effort now not enough with the increased competition and lure of basketball and football?

Also, isn't it pretty well documented that all Americans are playing less baseball? Our concern should be making it less of a country club game and more like what soccer is now, an everyman sport that you just assume kids will play when they're little. And we've discussed ad naseum on this site why youth soccer has it easier than youth baseball to attract parents and players, but that doesn't mean MLB and such still shouldn't make an effort to reverse the tide.

It's simply that there's less incentive to invest in player development in an area where the draft is in effect, for the obvious reason that you'll be spending resources on someone who won't end up on your club.

But there's a general fund, controlled by the commissioner, which actually would be well suited to investing in inner-city facilities. And they have taken at least one initiative that was said to be addressing this problem; I vaguely remember reading about some facility being built in the LA area.

The tools are there, so the question is why MLB doesn't appear to do more. (It may in fact do more, but not attract as much publicity for its efforts as people decrying the absence of African American players.)

Also, these measures are going to take time. It will be six or seven years of effort before any sign of payoff will appear, and another six years before these signs will feed into the major-league teams. Even if they had started work in 2001, there'd be another three years to go.

Since there is no payoff for individual franchises to make this kind of investment, MLB as a whole should do it. RBI is a nice enough idea, so why not go a lot bigger with it? They might not get a single major-league player out of it, but they'd certainly stand to get a whole bunch of fans (and some good press to boot).

They probably needed to purchase a rhyming dictionary or two.

No combination of the words "Sh**," "B***h," and "D**k" rhyme with each other, and yet pretty much every 2 Live Crew song I ever heard attempted to rhyme some combination of the above words multiple times.

I absolutely agree with you in the broader sense -- that MLB should make an effort to have more kids playing baseball, regardless of race, color, creed, or background.

And while kids in general seem less interested in baseball, black kids in particular seem even less interested. Of course, this would require a lot more work to corroborate.

But isn't that actually a self-refuting argument? For at least 35 years, people have been talking about the growing popularity of youth soccer in the U.S. and how it's going to be the next big thing as a result... and yet we've never seen the alleged affects of that.

It's a good point - I played a ton of soccer as a kid, but I'm not really a fan now. The only thing I can think of is that as a kid, I had basically no access to any sort of higher-level pros to watch or become attached to. There no concept of becoming a professional soccer player in the U.S. when I was growing up. Even now I don't know how well the average pro soccer player does in the U.S., and the best ones play in Europe anyway. It certainly doesn't seem that glamorous, like being an NBA star or something. It's not going to get you on tv or the best table at the nicest restaurant in town.

Like learning a language, there's probably a time in life when you are most susceptible to becoming a fan of a particular sport, and there are a lot of factors that can play into that.

In a highly debatable order:

1. having parents who follow the sport
2. having the sport be popular in your particular cultural subgroup
3. Having a popular and successful local team
4. playing the sport

That "increased participation in youth soccer" <> "professional soccer becomes popular" does not mean that "decreased participation in youth baseball" <> "professional baseball becomes less popular" and/or that fewer Americans of all races are less qualified to play at the uppermost level.

I'd say the chain goes like this: Fewer Americans play baseball, fewer Americans reach the top level of baseball, Americans begin to lose interest in what increasingly looks like a sport full of foreign mercenaries.

Yes, but — without doubt soccer interest has grown significantly in the United States over those thirty-five years. In a sense it has already become the next big thing. No other sport (except possibly NASCAR, which has minimal international profile) has grown anywhere near as rapidly in the US in my lifetime.

Those three words together are an example of assonance, which is in the universe of the rhyme. If they artfully scatter other short i sounds throughout their lines then they have replaced end-rhyme with assonance, just like Emily Dickinson.

I find this statement a measure of how times have changed. Back in the 1960s, the idea of living and working in Europe seemed remarkably glamourous. (Although it wouldn't have been as a professional athlete. Maybe as a spy or some kind of financial industry job.)

Except that Dickinson almost never did that. She tended to rhyme consonants, not vowels; often she would rhyme any vowel with any other vowel.

Fluttering first, then firmer,
To her fair repose.

Never did she lisp it,
And 'twas not for me;
She was mute from transport,

Till the evening, nearing,
One the shutters drew--
Quick! a sharper rustling!
And this linnet flew!

Just spiking interest isn't enough. Prospects are identified in high school, true enough. But alot of those guys are brought to the attention of scouts, by Legion coaches, coaches that hosted camps, or even privately sought out instructors. All those things cost money, which is the reason the majority of high school spects are prep school stars, they've had better instruction and the opportunity to attend programs where they can be identified. The RBI program and others like it will have to exist for some time before the in-roads are created for that type of comunnication to occur.

Re: #41-- There's not much qualitative difference between the airplay "Me So Horny" and the dirty version. However, the heartwarming, child-friendly "Pop That Coochie" is 75,000 times better than the explicit "Pop That Pussy." Meanwhile, "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" is only great because it's stupidly filthy.

So I got the black book for a freak to call
Picked up the telephone, then dialed the 7 digits
Said, yo: Wild Nights -- Wild Nights!

Wild Nights should be

I arrived at her house, The Heart has many Doors --
I can but knock --
For any sweet "Come in"
Impelled to hark --
I'm like a dog in heat, a freak without warning
The Red -- Blaze -- is the Morning --

Girls always ask me why I #### so much
I say, "The Thrill came slowly like a Boom
for Centuries delayed-
Its fitness growing like the Flood
In sumptuous solitude --
Count not that far that can be had,
I wont tell your mama if you don't tell your dad,
I know he'll be disgusted when he sees your ##### busted
Heart! We will forget him!
You and I -- tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave --
I will forget the light!
Will there really be a morning?
My appetite is sex, cause me so horny

Bud also has to take the World Series and its associated coverage and revenues with him, eventually prompting the Yankees (Penske), Red Sox (Ganassi), Cardinals (?...not sure that's a good analogy for Rahal-Letterman) and Dodgers (Andretti-Green) to petition to participate in Bud's playoffs, eventually jumping from MLB to the new league.

Of course, it is pretty clear that Indy is now damaged goods (in terms of attendance and interest around the state) compared to the late '80s-early '90s...hmmm...guess that DOES seem like something Bud would try to do.

It's been many years and many tunes since the album with "Me So Horny" came out, but I have a vague recollection of being partial to the song on it that started with a boisterous "Somebody say heyyy, We want some pu**y" ... followed by a background crew repeat.

Among Luther's mid-90s forays into thorny racial issues was agitating for The U to play the Af-Am second-stringer over (if memory serves) Frank Costa, whitey journeyman, at QB. Some big donors want their names on the stadium, some want to name the starting QB ...
