Congratulations to John Schuerholz and Bud Selig on their election to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Can't help but wonder when the baseball establishment will get their heads out of their asses and vote these two great men in. Marvin Miller and Curt Flood changed baseball as we know it and they can't be thanked enough.

"I lost money, coaching jobs, a shot at the Hall of Fame. But when you weigh that against all the things that are really and truly important, things that are deep inside you, then I think I've succeeded." ~ #CurtFlood #artist #activist #MLB #ReserveClause #FreeAgent #Oakland #Pioneer #Baseball #History #FreeAgency #IAmAMan

In 1969, St. Louis Cardinal centerfielder Curt Flood was going to be traded. He refused to go to the Philadelphia Phillies. Teams “owned” players because of the reserve clause in their contracts. Flood argued that he was not a piece of property, sued Major League Baseball, and battled all the way to the Supreme Court. He ultimately lost which ended his career and destroyed his life. However, historians credit Flood’s battle with eventually ending the reserve clause system and making free agency possible. During his court battles, Flood frequently visited Denmark living in Copenhagen and here in Vedbæk near the beach and harbor. Denmark was his sanctuary where Flood said he was treated as neither a Black man nor an athlete—“just as a human being” #curtflood #baseball #stlouiscardinals #denmark #danmark #copenhagen #københavn #vedbæk #vedbækstrand #vedbækhavn

I often have to remind Myself that the sociopolitical history of sport is taught through the lens of Whoever is teaching.
As a Black American Woman coming from a FAMILY culture of sport, I see the Colin Kaepernick situation through a lens formed by watching, listening and researching the fates of athletes such as Paul Robeson, Tommie Smith, John Carlos, Curt Flood; and Muhammad Ali WHEN they used their athletic platform to speak out on societal issues. "The 49ers opened up their offseason conditioning on Monday of this week without Kaepernick, A few of his teammates are wondering why his fate for next season is taking so long to be decided. Time will tell of course, but regardless of anyone’s view on his politics or his on-field play, the complete lack of interest on the market is looking fishier and tougher to explain with each passing day."

The fact that the BBHoF Veterans Committee has not voted CURT FLOOD into the BBHoF is unconscionable. He should be voted in because his fight against the reserve clause lead to the tremendous betterment of the players. #curtflood #mlb #bbhof #baseball #baseballhalloffame #bbhofveteranscommitee
