I found Madman "Don Draper" in the Cardinal's owners Sky Box! #Cardinals #HOF #CurtFlood #STL #madmen

When #Olympic sprinters #TommieSmith and #JohnCarlos stood on top of the medal podium at the 1968 #SummerGames in #MexicoCity, bowed their heads and Raised #BlackPowerFist during the playing of the #NationalAnthem, millions of their fellow Americans were outraged. But countless millions more around the globe thrilled to the sight of two men standing before the world, #Unafraid, #Expressing #Disillusionment with a nation that so often fell, and still falls, so short of its promise.

In tribute to Smith, Carlos and every other athlete #EricLiddell, #CurtFlood#SandyKoufax and on and on who has acted on principle in a highly public way. Smith and Carlos both of whom are #NationalTrack and #Field #HallOfFamers were vilified at home for their stand. They were #Suspended from the #USATeam. They received DeathThreats. But neither man ever #Apologized for his raised fist or his bowed head and neither ever had need to.

"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
