I find this hard to comprehend. So you're saying that if the Negro Leagues proved to the world that they were equal or better than the NL/AL by beating them in the World Series, they would still not be as popular simply because they were black?

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
