Chris Rock's Compelling And Hilarious Take on Lack of Blacks in Major League Baseball; He Also Rips SF Giants
Chris Rock made a pointed and pretty funny contribution on HBO's "Real Sports", hosted by Bryant Gumbel.
In this seven-minute vignette, Rock bemoans the lack of Blacks in Major League Baseball. African-Americans currently make up only 8% of players in the game today. There was a time when that figure was around 28%. No longer, as Rock points out with statistics that boggle the mind and make you wonder about the National Pastime.
Shortly into the segment, Rock even calls out the San Francisco Giants and the fans at AT&T Park. Oh, and there's this golden nugget involving Lou Seal too, team mascot.
