    Stealing in baseball

    Is it racist that I observe that the most successful base stealers in baseball have been black?

    I quit watching professional sports long ago.

    I couldn't understand the fact that the majority of pro athletes are Black.

    I further couldn't understand the utter arrogance of these pros biting the hands that feed them, and turning pro sports into their own narcissistic playground.

    Yeah, but he wasn't Rickey Henderson, Maury Wills, or Lou Brock.

    6 of 10 of the top all time base stealers were white players. Managers decide to send or not send players who steal bases.
    I only vote for Republicans. I do not support Biden. Biden will never be supported by me.
