Report Credits Selig With Making
Progress In Minority Hiring
END RESULT? In Philadelphia, Claire Smith notes the report credited MLB Commissioner Bud Selig “for overseeing ‘significant progress’ in hiring and historic strides in ownership by minorities and women” (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 4/7). In Baltimore, Dan Connolly reports for the first time “in four-plus decades, the Orioles’ Opening Day roster had no black players from the [U.S.].” Nationals manager Frank Robinson: “Latinos, opposed to African-Americans, are just the opposite now (in terms of numbers) than it was, say, 10 years ago. I don’t think that’s good, but what are you going to do?” (Baltimore SUN, 4/7).
