Remembering Baseball’s African American Pioneers

This was an article I wrote for black history month for my SI Kids Reporters blog.   February is Black History month and this made me think about the impact that African-Americans have had on the sports world. One of the biggest impacts, in my opinion, was the Negro Leagues. In August 2011, I was lucky enough to go to Kansas City to see a Royals vs. Yankees game. What I did not know was the history of baseball in K.C. is more then just the Royals.
