Are there a lot of AA guys going to college in broadcasting majors?
Who are some active black players who can be future announcers? We should make a list.
Curtis Granderson is a very obvious one. Can't really think of any others off hand. Phillips probably. Haven't heard Pierre talk lately.
maybe howie kendrick.
is willie harris still active?
is derek jeter black enough?
Baseball is kind of a hostile environment for blacks as a whole - I'm surprised the black guys working in the media can still do so seemingly oblivious to their ridicule and each one has their 'fan base' of guys who pick them apart on places like message boards and BBTF.
They seem to be either just straight up idiots or too old school i.e. ignorant and not stats savvy enough - they still pilloried on sites like this, mocked, ridiculed, et al - it maybe hyperbole but why isn't there a Fire Tim McCarver or Fire Joe Buck Web site?
Are there any black NBA play-by-play broadcasters?
The play by play guys for the Eastern Conference teams are all white. A lot of the analysts are African-American.
