Blacks in Baseball

I read an article in Time Magazine that stated only 8% of major league players are black.

In 1964, at the height of the civil rights movement, Jackie Robinson published a compilation of interviews with major league players and managers about the state of integration of the game.

During that time period, I would say that was very noble of Mr. Robinson. He was taking a chance of being a target and also put his family in harms way. He must have thought it an important issue.
