In honor of Black History Month coming up I found a great video I must share with you. A very motivated teenager, named Cam Perron has been researching the history of the Negro Leagues. This video is very interesting and inspiring as he has tracked down old ballplayers from the Negro Leagues and helped them receive some credit, notoriety, and in some cases, financial restitution that they deserved, but were denied. Many of these players were sadly forgotten. Learning more about the plight of these players has been eye opening. We should all be grateful for the contributions made by these brave athletes to the game of baseball. It’s amazing to see them finally get some long overdue accolades! Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing this. I’ll have to find a way to get this to my dad. He’s a huge fan of Negro Legues Baseball, and volunteers at the Negro Legue Museum here in KC. This young man is quite an inspiration. To take a passion like that and turn it into something so valuable is a remarkable thing.
It’s truly remarkable what he’s doing. Glad you liked it!
