It could be a couple of things, I guess.
The cultural preference for a certain sport by young women.
The lack of baseball facilities in neighborhoods.
The different costs of equipment supplies of the two sports.
If it was racism, I think it would have made the news by now.

Look at the decline of African American participation in Baseball compared to the 70's and 80's. For I'm sure a myriad of reasons the diamond sports aren't as popular with African Americans.


#2 Ranked UCLA (play in Jackie Robinson Stadium)



#1 Ranked Florida

It's the admissions office's fault.

Alabama, the state--26% African-American
Alabama, the university--13% African-American

I don't think admission offices have anything to do with that.
Alabama has almost a dozen public and private black colleges
that probably come close to accounting for that 13% discrepancy.

FWIW - I can see it happening but they've got 2 games to win before in can or should happen.



I had no idea that you went to the University of Alabama.
