Jimmie Lee Solomon, vice president of baseball operations for the MLB says that if more Black people watched and attended baseball games, the percentage of Black players would increase.

In 2011, Black people only represent 8.5 percent of Major League Baseball.

“From an anecdotal standpoint and as a black man, I think it makes a lot of sense that a lot of people like to see that they’re welcome,” Solomon said. “They want to feel that the industry that they are supporting is inclusive and they want to feel comfortable. They want to feel that the industry has embraced them as a people. When you see more African-Americans on the field of play, we do as African-Americans enjoy seeing people who look like us in those positions of celebrity.”
