I ask because there are SOO many latino players in the bigs now.

My son talks about wanting to play baseball as his dream... but what % of baseball players are white Americans now?

Where to find that out?

Just playing at the college level is a pretty big accomplishment. That's mostly white kids right there.

You talk like there's some quota in place. I don't see how the % of white Americans playing baseball has an affect on your son's dreams to play.

Didn't Andy Rooney have a commentary similar to this a few years ago?
