Mighty Casey wouldn’t recognize Mudville anymore. If the mighty poetic slugger could be brought to opening day in 2010, nary a soul would see him strike out (baseball attendance is woeful).

America’s past time is dead. It is isn’t dying, it is dead. Baseball is a sport behind NFL football, NASCAR, college football, college basketball (around NCAA Tournament time), Mixed Marital Arts and World Wrestling Entertainment (just look at the numbers WWE gets for Monday Night Raw) in popularity.

The only sport baseball beats in popularity in America is the WNBA, but never doubt the power of 200,000 lesbians to pull their beloved sport ahead of “America’s game”. Certainly, Tiger Woods is more newsworthy than baseball.

Ratings are woefully, attendance -as stated – is dropping faster than Lehman Brothers and Bear Sterns stock and the media is doing everything possible to drum up interest in a game that not even the magical appearance of Shoeless Joe Jackson could resurrect.

Baseball is no longer a game played by Americans (for that matter, the nation of America is no longer a nation of Americans, as the realization that half of all births are non-white).

Black people have long since abandoned the game of baseball for the greener pastures of the NBA and the NFL (or, if that fails, prison or Federal Government employment).

As the first pitch of 2010 prepares to be thrown, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torri Hunter has decided to prematurely fling his bat directly into the delicate – unmentionable – glass foundation of the racial dynamics of the MLB. Bemoaning the lack of Black players in the league, Hunter told USA Today:

Fans look down from their seats onto the baseball field, see dark-colored skin and might assume they are African-American players.But increasingly, the players instead hail from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico or Venezuela.”People see dark faces out there, and the perception is that they’re African American,” Los Angeles Angels center fielder Torii Hunter says. “They’re not us. They’re impostors.”Even people I know come up and say, ‘Hey, what color is Vladimir Guerrero? Is he a black player?’ I say, ‘Come on, he’s Dominican. He’s not black.’ “Baseball’s African-American population is 8%, compared with 28% for foreign players on last year’s opening-day rosters.”As African-American players, we have a theory that baseball can go get an imitator and pass them off as us,” Hunter says. “It’s like they had to get some kind of dark faces, so they go to the Dominican or Venezuela because you can get them cheaper. It’s like, ‘Why should I get this kid from the South Side of Chicago and have Scott Boras represent him and pay him $5 million when you can get a Dominican guy for a bag of chips?'”I’m telling you, it’s sad.”

Hunter is correct in his assessment of MLB’s dilemma: there is a major correlation between plummeting ratings, poor attendance and the lack of America born (Black or white) born players in the league. Sadly, Hunter’s truthful admission of baseballs new color problem has been greeted with jeers instead of cheers:

Los Angeles center fielder Torii Hunter was at first startled, and then angered Wednesday when comments he made about diversity in baseball were construed as potentially racist.Hunter, who found himself in a firestorm of online criticism about comments he made in a USA TODAY roundtable discussion, says he meant no harm or disrespect to Latin American players.Hunter, in discussing the dearth of African-American players in baseball, referred to Latin players as “imposters.” He was trying to make the distinction between Latin players and American-born black players with the seven other members of the roundtable…”I’m not going to apologize,” Hunter said in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon. “I told the truth. I’m sorry if I used the wrong choice of words…In the USA TODAY story, Hunter said: “People see dark faces out there, and the perception is that they’re African-American. They’re not us. They’re impostors. Even people I know come up and say: ‘Hey, what color is Vladimir Guerrero? Is he a black player?’ I say, ‘Come on, he’s Dominican. He’s not black.’ …”As African-American players, we have a theory that baseball can go get an imitator and pass them off as us. It’s like they had to get some kind of dark faces, so they go to the Dominican or Venezuela because you can get them cheaper. It’s like, ‘Why should I get this kid from the South Side of Chicago and have Scott Boras represent him and pay him $5 million when you can get a Dominican guy for a bag of chips?’The African-American population in baseball is only about 8%, compared to 28% of foreign players on last year’s opening-day rosters. Yet, although MLB is trying to increase the number of black players in baseball, the Latin population continues to grow.”I think scouts look for talent,” Guillen says, “no matter where you come from. If you have talent, they’re going to sign you. I think it’s not just African-American players, because I think they’d rather play basketball or football than play baseball. In our country, we play baseball.”Here you can play basketball, you can be another athlete, you can do so many things when you have the opportunity. And that’s why there’s not many (African American) players out there. That’s the reason I think Major League Baseball opened the RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) thing, to show more underprivileged kids how to play the game. …”The reason there are so many Latin American players here is because I think they earn it. You look around at who are the superstars in baseball right now, and who are the people making the most money, you’re going to see a lot of Latin American players’ names out there. I keep saying in 10 more years, American people are going to need a visa to play this game because we’re going to take over.”

Read the last quote by Ozzie Guillen again and let it sink in. Americans (the historic population as reflected in the 1964 population – 90 percent white, 10 percent Black… almost 0 Hispanics), will need a VISA to play baseball because it will be majority Hispanic!

Guillen could have easily said Americans will need a VISA to visit many American cities that have become unrecognizable to white and Black people, but instead look like an extension of Mexico, but the baseball analogy is apt.

If this happens, baseball will be irrelevant and will have difficulty being shown on any channel save Telemundo.

Here is a racial breakdown of MLB players by position.

But these comments from Hunter were made – oddly enough – just barely a decade after everyone’s whipping boy John Rocker accurately gave his infamous interview with Sports Illustrated that landed him in diversity training:

JOHN ROCKER has opinions, and there’s no way to sugarcoat them. They are politically incorrect, to say the least, and he likes to express them.
On ever playing for a New York team: “I would retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the [Number] 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you’re [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing.”

On New York City itself: “The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. I’m not a very big fan of foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?”But Rocker reserves a special place in his heart for Mets fans, whom he began bad-mouthing during the regular season when the Braves were battling the Mets for the National League East title eventually won by Atlanta. Although the Braves beat the Mets in a grueling six-game Championship Series (and thus reached the World Series, in which they were swept by the other New York team, the Yankees), Rocker has not allowed himself to let go of the bitterness. You try to find different topics — hunting, women, family — but it always comes back to three cold nights at Shea, when bottles whizzed past his head, beer was dumped on his girlfriend and 2,007 sexual positions involving him and a sheep were suggested…

ORDER IT NOW

ROCKER BEMOANS the fact that he is not more intelligent, and though his father says John graduated with a 3.5 GPA from Presbyterian Day High in Macon, Ga., in 1993, sometimes it’s hard to argue. In passing, he calls an overweight black teammate “a fat monkey.” Asked if he feels any bond with New York Knicks guard Latrell Sprewell, notorious for choking coach P.J. Carlesimo two years ago, Rocker lets out a snarl of disgust. “That guy should’ve been arrested, and instead he’s playing basketball,” he says. “Why do you think that is? Do you think if he was Keith Van Horn — if he was white — they’d let him back? No way.” Rocker is rarely tongue-tied when it comes to bashing those of a race or sexual orientation different from his. “I’m not a racist or prejudiced person,” he says with apparent conviction. “But certain people bother me.”

John Rocker was suspended, underwent diversity training for his thought crime and never recovered from the stigma of being baseball’s version of Pat Buchanan. What happened to Rocker? Well, he started a campaign with the simple slogan of “Speak English” something that many on the rosters of MLB 30+ teams can’t do:

The mission statement of the “Speak English” campaign is to encourage people to promote and support the sustainment of the American heritage and the American culture. Many people over many generations have invested blood, sweat, and tears into creating an America that affords all of us opportunities that are not available anywhere else in the world. Out of respect to past generations, the least we can do as the present generation is to promote the longevity of the culture that our forefathers have created.

Baseball is done. Stick a fork in the game. Mighty Casey isn’t even bothering to put on his batting helmet anymore.

Not even James Earl Jones wonderful soliloquy from Field of Dreams could shock people into caring about a game that is now alien and foreign to them. Torri Hunter is correct: baseball is no longer a Black man’s game. John Rocker was right, too, but he took the brunt of criticism and psychotherapy because in Black Run America (BRA), only white people can be racist.

Even when whites are a pathetic minority amid the non-white plurality, all Black failures (and Hispanic) will be placed on the shoulders of a people still longing for the return of limited government and Tea Parties.

Black players are becoming as rare in baseball as a white tailback or corner back in football, and some clubs won’t even have Black players when the 2010 season starts:

The percentage of African-American players increased to 10.2 percent in 2008, according to the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports — up from an 8.2 percent in ’07, the lowest level in the more than 20 years of the study.Still, a glance at several projected Opening Day rosters reveals some disturbing snapshots:• The Cardinals, the team of Bob Gibson and Lou Brock, will be without an African-American.• The Braves, the team of Hank Aaron, will feature an African-American only if rookie outfielder Jason Heyward and/or non-roster infielder Joe Thurston make the club.• The Mets’ only African-American will be outfielder Gary Matthews Jr., a player they recently acquired in a trade.• The Tigers could be without an African-American if they fail to keep outfielder Austin Jackson or left-hander Dontrelle Willis.• The White Sox and Marlins, teams with African-American general managers, will each have only one African-American player — outfielder Juan Pierre for the White Sox and outfielder Cameron Maybin for the Marlins.These teams are not racist; they are looking for the best players. As Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron, an African-American, recently told me, “Different teams go through stages where they have more or less African-American players on their roster. With only about nine percent in the league, it’s going to happen.”But therein lies the problem.One point from the USA Today roundtable deserves more attention than Hunter’s comments: The low number of baseball scholarships — 11.7 per season — permitted for each Division I team.The scholarship limit in football is 85. In basketball, it’s 13 — and a basketball team uses only five players at a time.On the other hand, football and basketball are revenue-producing sports and baseball is not.”The colleges have corrupted baseball because they’ve taken away the scholarships,” agent Scott Boras said during the roundtable. “They’ve taken away America’s pastime from the grassroots level of homes.”The trend is just the opposite on the international market, where teams sign large numbers of Latin players inexpensively because such players are not subject to the amateur draft.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like applauds Torii Hunter for taking a stand for America’s game, although it is 10 years too late. John Rocker put up the only true fight, because the changing demographics of America spelled the doom for the game long before baseball scouts started targeting cheap Latin ballplayers.

A perfect example of the changing face of America can be found in baseball movies produced by Hollywood studios. Watch Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, Major League 1 and 2 (not the third film) Rookie of the Year, The Sandlot, Mr. 3000, For the Love of the Game. The team dynamics transition from majority white with a few Black players to majority Hispanic with a precious white players.

“The one constant through all the years, has been baseball”… it was said once. No longer. The past is being erased slowly, and replaced with the future of embodied by Ozzie Guillen.

You won’t just need a VISA to be an American-born ballplayer in the major leagues… you’ll need a VISA to visit many major America cities.

Pre-Obama America wasn’t such a bad place after all, was it?

Torii Hunter is a proud Black man. He shouldn’t have to apologize for what he said, because he is correct in his diagnosis of the deplorable state of baseball.

Equally, John Rocker is a proud white man. He was right about everything he said in his interview and about the changing face of America. He shouldn’t apologize either.

    SBPDL,

    First of all America wasn't founded by whites, it was founded by Indians. So I don't know why you're making a big deal about other races being a majority of players in specific sports.

    I see no shame in sharing our country with other races. America is the most diverse country anyway, and people came here a long time ago to make a living, so we shouldn't have a problem with them being a majority in sports. And plus some races not including the whites have made the sports we play. So don't make such a big deal about something so little. And the reason why majorities of races are taking over sports is because they're proving that they're better at the sport than others.

  4. Agreed. Lib is not helping to dispel the notion of low black intelligence.

  5. Liberator you're an idiot. Country doesn't mean countryside. America was created by whites. Injuns were simply in the way. A nation isn't just a piece of real estate.

    This 'Liberator' guy is a real hoot. What are you 'liberating' us from? I hope you stay around a bit longer. Perhaps you will 'liberate' us from our 'guilt'.

    HAHAHA!

  7. Liberator, that was a dumb argument. Yes, I think we all know that American Indians were living on this continent long before Europeans arrived. However, they were in no way the founders of this nation. They didn't write the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, create this nation's institutions, or expand this nation's territory.

    Also, answer me this: Can you name ONE successful multiracial nation in the world? No, don't say the United States, because up until the past few decades, this nation was predominantly white. Trust me, it's no coincidence that this nation's decline coincides with increasing racial diversity.

    Revisionists give non-whites way too much credit for "building" this nation. Yes, many different groups provided menial labor and helped "build" this nation. However, any drone can perform menial labor. If the Chinese weren't recruited to build the railroads, the corporate heads would have gotten some poor Irish or Eastern European immigrants to build them. I'm also constantly being told that slavery made the United States wealthy, financed the industrial revolution, and is solely responsible for this nation's great wealth. Sorry, but that's hogwash! Is it any coincidence that the poorest states in the nation are the former slave states? You can talk all you want about how the Northern states at some point in time had slaves, but slavery did not foster great economic growth. If anything, slavery undercut wages of the common white man in the South and economically crippled the region.

    Wow! That was my long rant. By the way, I'm new here, and enjoy the blog. Keep up the good work!

  9. Well said Dave.

    Baseballs death has plenty to do with soaring ticket prices and games that last all day. Here in Boston for a family of four your looking at 500 bucks. Lot of money in these times to take the wife and kids to a ball game. Plus if its a weekday game your looking at getting home some time in the early morning due to the endless commercial breaks and aimless wandering around by the batter till he's ready.
    I have to laugh at the endless bitching from the blacks on their numbers in baseball or anything else. They make up 80% of the NBA, you dont here whites complaining. Just more of the perpetual crying from the childlike race.

    A couple of things…Re "If the Chinese weren't recruited to build the railroads, the corporate heads would have gotten some poor Irish or Eastern European immigrants to build them.."
    Take a look sometime at old railroad beds. The labor required to build them was astonishing. Don't ever discount the amount of labor required to "build America". Compared to building rail lines across the western US, picking cotton is nothing.
    Re non white citizens..where I work recently a Sudanese woman attained her citizenship via attending the required classes. She came here a few steps ahead of the machete with her name on it. She is a pleasant and generous woman with nothing but the highest praise for the USA. She works hard at a job that doesn't pay much but asks a lot of her. They threw a party for her. She did it the right way. I wonder how she feels about the Hispanics who sneak in. Personally the racism displayed by Hispanics is both overt and covert; it will prove very dangerous to the country's future in a few decades.
    Overt Hispanic racism is heard frequently. The more dangerous racism is the covert kind, because it is as widespread as the mass La Raza movement. This movement implies the Raza is entitled to as much land as it wants simply by virtue of the color and origin of the Raza.
    As Peter Brimelow predicts, the Hispanic popular movement is death knell of the USA as we know it. Secession is inevitable. This may be good for the whites in the USA, or be bad, but cannot be avoided. We as a nation have not encountered such a situation since the slavery crisis.

  11. Isn't it odd that an entertainment, baseball, has attained this status? Baseball is a child's game with an appreciable aesthetic component, as far as ball games go. That's it. The rest is hype. I am seriously tired of the rants of money hungry promoters, but am feeling dread at the deep down hatreds Hispanics have for the American culture. Their arrogance is breathtaking.
    I get a feeling we are in some kind of slow-mo race war on the scale, if not the intensity, of the kind the pioneers fought hundreds of years ago.

    The USA as I understood it, has been dead for some time already. If this 'Aztlan' is ever founded on our territory, it will be as corrupt and aimless as Mexico and the other 'Latin' countries that have supplied its population.

    "I get a feeling we are in some kind of slow-mo race war on the scale, if not intensity, of the kind the pioneers fought hundreds of years ago."

    No one is fighting in this war you speak of. They are sleeping, dreaming of their lost country that has long been dead and gone.

    We all know what really fueled the successes of 'Old America'. That fuel was not black or brown. If it was, they would already have successful countries where they originated.

    They don't want our land. They want the success we created here. The land has little to do with it, whether they understand that or not.

    Dave those are some horrible jokes you be making and I'm with Liberator. Where America is was founded by the Indians, a traveler named this land which was infested by the Indians America. Whites weren't the ones who first found it. Get your facts right.

    "America was founded by Indians? Tell us more. Did they call it America? Did they build roads for cars? Did they build cars? Did they build the buildings at the Federal capitol? Please, go on, we want to hear the narrative of how "America" was founded by Indians."

    I think Liberator meant that they found the land which was later called America first. And it's sad how you guys didn't even focus on the real point Liberator was trying to get out. Has the world gone completely dumb, or is it just you guys?

  16. How many Indians signed the Declaration of Independence?

    How many Indians were an integral part of the 13 original colonies?

    How many Indians were at the 1st or 2nd Continental Congress?

    "The Indians" – those people we sanctify and lament as such a wonderful race, were in actually, a primitive stone-age population that was even more bellicose than the indigenous African population Europeans encountered.

    Read "Scalp Dance" an accurate tale of the Indian Wars.

    The Indians were little more than scattered,warring nomadic tribes. Nothing more, nothing less.

    You don't "find" America, last anon. The Indians were for centuries inhabitants of the land mass that would become America – only when the whites arrived with their ideas of private property – and these Indian tribes did little with land except erect temporary settlements.

    Has the world gone completely dumb, you ask? Whoever said it wasn't mad to begin with, I counter?

  17. Re "No one is fighting in this war you speak of. They are sleeping, dreaming of their lost country that has long been dead and gone."
    Poetically put. However, to believe that "no one is fighting" is to believe human nature has changed with the decline of Anglo America, and I doubt that. "They" are fighting block by block in LA, I understand. And as to "our land" not being wanted, I dispute that somewhat. Land and resources are what war is mostly about. I don't think Hispanics are envious of our success to the point of inertia about seizing what they can of our land and resources. They may indeed be aware of their own incompetence with regard to national management (how could they not?) but that won't stop them. They'll take what they can.
    The USA is in the position Europe would be if there was no Mediterranean divide, and North Africa was in total collapse economically and culturally.The essential problem is psychological; an enormous number of people in Anglo culture think life can be a "win-win situation"; whereas most every one else on the planet knows differently.
    One more note: if anyone really wants to know what Hispanic/Mestizo domination will do to the USA, take a look at the FBI site on the most wanted criminals. I did, and was astonished to find that 95% of the criminal class is Hispanic. I mean these guys ARE organized crime in this country.

    In LA however, they fight a 'war' against 'crime'. They can not and will not 'name' mestizos as the 'enemy'. Speaking of 'naming' I find it interesting that you brought up the FBI. I have been to their website as well and am amused that they list the race of these men you mentioned as White. I wonder if these men think of themselves as White?

    I could care less for wasting my time watering down the truth. If people get offended, so be it.

    P.S. I recently read an article related to this subject ("The War of the Wombs?"):

  21. Black Guy, you're absolutely right. We don't like you, nor do we have any reason to (and vice versa). I don't wish harm on blacks, but many whites like me just want blacks out of our hair.

    I know, it is ultimately our fault that blacks are here, since we wouldn't have racial problems if our ancestors didn't drag blacks here in the first place.

    Still, this multiracial experiment has been a dismal failure. Whites and blacks cannot occupy the same space and live in harmony. There are a few individual friendships that cross racial lines, but only on an individual level. Judging from your post, it seems as if you have separatist leanings. Unless I've horribly misinterpreted your posts, we actually agree on a few things.

    Critical Thinker,

    Have you come to the conclusion that NATION is PEOPLE?

    With all this criticism of the Redman I was hoping that thought wouldn't get buried here. I may be a condescending Nordic man (not Anglo or Saxon) but, I respect those that stand and fight for their own kind.

    I believe Eric Holder (essentially) once said that 'Americans' are too pussyfooted to hold a real discussion on race (I doubt he wanted this). I find it disturbing that the 'Party Line' here is in support of 'multiculturalism'.

    The 'multiculturalism' they speak of is actually the ENEMY of all cultures involved. The preservation of all our unique cultures and genes will only be preserved if we reject their perverted 'multiculturalism'.

    It's amazing to me, how such a conclusion is so disturbing to so many. Then again, that's probably why Mr. SBPDL spends so much time making these seemingly pointless observations about what 'they' teach us with 'popular culture'.

    Sometimes objective thought isn't so 'critical'.

    Dave

  23. L'Roi,

    In regard to white nature (odious as it is by your implication), you're right. We do not like blacks and never will. Though you seem utterly oblivious as to why that might be. Is it your belief that whites just don't like brown skin? Fat lips? Flaring nostrils? Sloping foreheads? No.

    It's not the color of your skin that repulses us, but the content of your character (to borrow from Marty King). This site itself is an irreverent catalogue of that character which we must endure from blacks–and it doesn't even touch on the serious aspects: the loss of our freedom of speech and association, battalions of incompetent overpaid black affirmative action bureaucrats living off our confiscated taxes, "hate crime" and "civil rights" laws which only punish whites and coddle blacks, generations of white-to-black transfer payments and aid to every black hell-hole on Earth. All so that they can continue to outbreed us 3/1.

    Then there is the crime. Always the violence and crime from blacks. If you want to know the crime rate of any city in America, you need only know one statistic: the percentage of blacks in the population. If you want to know the worst schools, you ask yourself the same question.

    And to all of this blacks have one response: "Racist!"

    Well yes. A man can walk through life with his eyes open embracing a philosophy that corresponds to the world he observes or he can occupy a fantasy world and become a victim. My hope is that more and more whites will finally choose the former.

    You men(or women) are repeatedly degrading your intelligence by arguing about false facts about color. Color is something that's always going to be an issue in this world. Those who aren't racist on this website should know that you or anyone can't make a difference here. You have to understand that racist people are one of the most stubborn people on this Earth. I myself hate racism and am not apart of it.

    What I'm about to say is going to offend some people and cause you guys to probably make some rude comment against mine, but I really don't care. As a 7th grader in middle school I suggest you guys find Jesus and have him become apart of your life, because a lot of you on this website are going to find a judgment greater than what you can bear. So change up or face your judgment. God's going to deal with you haters and racists, sinners, murderers, ect!

    I am now done with this website and will leave you guys to make your own choice. Good luck to you all.

  26. Black Guy,

    Not sure where the comment about John Rocker going to Cooperstown came from, but okay.

    Rocker had three solid seasons and was broken by the SI interview and subsequent abuse that followed ( not to mention a devastating injury to his shoulder ).

    However, Rocker is a pretty smart guy and he diversified his earnings, starting a highly profitable real-estate company.

    The point of including Rocker in this story is to juxtapose the response he received to the timid response Hunter has gotten so far.

    I believe Torii Hunter is correct in a sense. Baseball is boring though, so I don't care that much. It is an irrelevant sport that refuses to evolve to be more fan-friendly.

  27. Liberator,

    I'm sad to see you go. You brought intelligence, balance, wit and a unique view to this website.

    Yes, racism is evil. It destroyed Zimbabwe and created a nation incapable of feeding itself because Robert Mugabe redistribute farm land to Black people and waged an undeclared war against white farmers.

    Whites are so racist that we spend our tax dollars doing everything to uplift Black people at every turn, through education, job programs, scholarships, affirmative action, food stamps, etc.

    South Africa – once Mandela dies – will be a hell hole so horrifying that Dante would be hard pressed to conjure similar images of evil as he viewed during his time in the Inferno.

    You operate under the assumption that Black people can't be racist (whatever that nebulous word means now).

    I have a number of entries here that showcase not only the opposite of that assumption, but do so in a manner that create cognitive dissonance in your mind.

    Best of luck in future endeavors….

    But I will say this, Mr. Liberator, "God is going to sit one out."

  28. SBPDL,

    God never sits anything out! That's why he's such an awesome God! Can I get an amen?

    In 1 Timothy 5:8 it states:

    "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

    God expects us to take care of both our families AND our own. Can I get an Amen???
