    Baseball commissioner Bud Selig opens another African-American baseball academy, this one in Houston.

    Think of the white talent that exists in college, while teams still select black players out of these "academies." What a waste of time, energy, and money.

    Unfortunately, the first thing I thought was "Gee, this makes Pittsburgh scouting a lot easier!" [​IMG]

    Sorry, LabMan.

    Very interesting!

    Are Wiggers really that desperate to bring blacks back to baseball? I already see lots of blacks in baseball, Hispanic</span> blacks that is.[​IMG]
