|America's Pastime past its prime for American blackfolk?

The Blackfolk Sports Community
Just thought I'd ask here, because I was reminded of a trend that I know has been discussed before. Has baseball passed American blackfolk by, or vice versa? This morning, when listening to the sports report on my local hip hop/R&B station, I realized that despite it being the presumptive sport of the summer, they had nothing to say about baseball, and haven't in recent memory on that segment (when I get to listen to it). Today's talk was tennis, track and field, and fantasy football. In contrast, during football or basketball season, they will often come back with updates on notable games from the night before, especially coming back from a weekend. On the one hand, we don't have a local team, as we do with basketball and football, but beyond that, is Black America over baseball? Are you over baseball?|
