NEGRO LEAGUES APPRECIATION DAY
On August 16th, The Players Alliance joined MLB in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Negro Leagues. Our members pay tribute to the first professional Black Baseball League with a custom capsule collection, co-created by CC Sabathia in partnership with Roots of Fight, to benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
Listen to R2C2 with hosts CC Sabathia and Ryan Ruocco as they are joined by the President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Bob Kendrick, and MLB All-Star Curtis Granderson. In this episode, they discuss the importance of embracing the history of the Negro Leagues, stories about Negro League legends, how the Negro Leagues shaped the game we see today, and the league’s legacy on its Centennial.
