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.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
