Martin Luther King Day

Given that it's Martin Luther King Day, I figured I'd give everyone direct links over to Sports PhD's articles on "Men Who Changed Baseball", highlighting some of the first African-American players in the game. This is a great series for a blogger to be writing, and I honestly think it should be picked up by something mainstream. Anyway, the links are below:

1. Jackie Robinson

2. Larry Doby

3. Hank Thompson

4. Monte Irvin

5. Sam Jethroe

6. Minnie Minoso

7. Bob Trice

I'd also like to link Verdun2's Blog (a regular commenter at Sports PhD). His blog often looks at historical baseball stories, but he also has an interesting post on a little-known catcher, Charles Thomas.
