    Just to make sure you're never bored:

    MLB has posted full youtube videos of every game from 2009-2016. Here's 2009.

    Retrosheet now has 1907 box scores. I wonder whether they'll try to keep this going past 1901. I guess we'll find out in 3-4 years.

    Not sure exactly where to put this, but here is a fascinating history of black baseball in the 19th century. There was some integration, it appears:

    The Pythians were an extremely talented and capable baseball team among Black ball clubs, and they wanted equal consideration from white clubs. In 1869, they issued a challenge to every white team in Philadelphia: play us. Their challenge was accepted and they made history when they played the first documented game of interracial baseball against the Olympics, Philadelphia’s oldest white baseball club.

    Though the Philadelphia Olympics routed the Pythians, 44-23, The Spirit of the Times of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, declared, “old-time prejudices are melting away in this country.” They went on to say, “It is not considered outside our own territory a lessening of dignity nor in the least disparaging to white men that they contend with blacks.” That journal hoped that “now that the prejudice has been broken through here, it will be entirely swept away.” The Pythians showed themselves to be worthy competitors for white clubs, and they went on to play white teams both locally and regionally.
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.
