We also look at the declining interest of baseball in the black community and the direct effect it has had on the Harlem Little League. In the report we speak with Parents, coaches, league volunteers, players, and we here from a few New York Yankees from Old-Timers day talking about the declining interest of baseball in the black community. Sit back and give it a listen.
