‘You can’t help but notice’: World Series showcases dearth of Black players By Curtis Bunn

A very interesting article…. It was very insightful except for one little error….

“As the World Series plays out this weekend between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros, the glaring lack of Black players on both teams, and MLB in general, is not lost on Grissom. The Braves and Astros each have one Black player on their World Series roster: Terrance Gore of Atlanta and Michael Brantley of Houston. Most MLB teams had two or fewer Black players, and three had none at the start of the season. About 50 percent of the league, meanwhile, is made up of Latin players”

An unnecessary statistic. It gives the allusion that they are somehow being favorited or that the owners are of Hispanic descent and the players are not there because of their talent, otherwise the article was great.
