    One of the reasons why many find the sport of baseball boring is because the majority of them don’t understand the rules of the game. I find baseball games to be completely consuming. Yeah, I know, it’s just a game. Unless you know the rules to the game, it’s hard to really appreciate all that goes on.

    The start of African Americans playing baseball broke many barriers for the race, not only in sports, but also in society. The desegregation of baseball helped lead to the desegregation of society as a whole. This broken barrier paved the way for many opportunities for African Americans. In 1947, Jackie Robinson made history by doing what no other African American had ever done. Major League Baseball started in 1867, and until the 1940s, only Caucasians were allowed to play.
