Bo Jackson changed the way we look at the possibilities of professional sports and what the pro athlete could accomplish. We had never seen simultaneous dominance on the MLB field and on the NFL gridiron. While his legendary tale didn’t last long due to a tragic injury, his talent mesmerized a generation of athletes and to this day nobody knows more than Bo, one of our legendary MLBbros.
Mark Gray goes “Black In The Day” to celebrate the MLBro superstars who helped put HBCU baseball on the map and produced All-Star careers in the Major Leagues; Hall of Famer Andre “Hawk” Dawson, quick stick speedster and multiple Gold Glove outfielder Marquis Grissom and Vince Coleman, one of the greatest base stealers in MLB history.
Mark Gray goes Black In The Day to remember a MLBbro pioneer, umpire Emmet Ashford. Ashford became the first Black man to umpire an MLB game in 1966 and he was undeniably attached to his culture when executing his task.
