Three Former US presidents are tipping their caps to honor the centennial of baseball’s negro leagues.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Negro leagues. Major League Baseball had planned a more elaborate celebration for the legendary league prior to the pandemic. The Negro Leagues paved the way for many black baseball players to enter the Major League. President Barack Obama tipped his cap to legendary negro league players like Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson and Cool Papa Bell. Former president and former Texas Rangers owner George Bush honored Willie Mays, his favorite former negro league player. President Bill Clinton tipped a Chicago Cubs cap in honor of baseball great Ernie Banks, who began his career in the negro leagues. The videos will be appearing on Youtube, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag tipping your cap 2020.
