Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated is one of the best writers/reporters in the sports  media industry. His podcast, the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, is a must listen, and if you aren’t following him on Twitter stop missing out on gems on everything from sports, to media, to politics.

I had great teammates, but I always wondered why more blacks didn’t play America’s Pastime; I also wonder, as the percentage continues to decline, whether or not anything can be done to reverse the trend.
