Description

Michael Thurmon was one of the organizers of the Tennessee Vintage Base Ball Association. His love for history led him to study early base ball, as it was played in the middle of the 19th Century.

Today, he has taken his love for The Game to coach a team of youngsters who he teaches baseball skills, but he goes a step further, too: He teaches him about the history of the National Pastime, including the Negro Leagues.

If coaches would do what Michael has done, baseball would be understood in a more pleasant way. Learning from an early age helps to set a foundation that can set up a long season of memories.

Without including Negro Leagues history, no baseball player, young or old, can truly understand what that foundation truly is. In this episode, I ask all coaches to tell about baseball history, and be sure to include the history of the Negro Leagues!
