Black Baseball in Chicago: A Talk with John Baker and Negro Leagues Expert Bob Kendrick

Last week on John Baker Day, Cubs mental skills coordinator John Baker had a conversation about the history of black baseball in Chicago with Negro Leagues Baseball Museum President Bob Kendrick and LaVonte Stewart of Lost Boyz.

Sunday night, Sara Sanchez and Andi Cruz Vanacek from Cuppa Cubbie Blue and The Son Ranto Show break down that conversation and explore the rich history of baseball played before integration. They’ll celebrate titans of the game like Rube Foster and Buck O’Neil and recognize the contributions of the Negro Leagues to today’s game.

Join us live tonight at 5 pm after the Cubs game for an interactive conversation! And help Lost Boyz by donating to them today!

You can watch the entire hour and a half conversation as well. Bob Kendrick is a man I could listen to for weeks.
