Yankees Baseball Card Trivia at Noon – Black History Month

We thank ProfRobert for all his hard work in providing us with this week’s Yankees Baseball Card Trivia at Noon.

Friday: I don’t remember the first Yankee game I ever attended, but I am certain this man played in it (he played 143 or more games seven straight years, peaking with years of 156, 158 and 159). There was never a time for me when blacks and whites playing baseball together was anything out of the ordinary. It certainly didn’t mean that racism had ended, but thanks to a host of factors (Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey; Truman integrating the military; Brown v. Board of Education; the Civil Rights Act of 1964) integration as a concept had been normalized for my and future generations.
