SBOBET There are people in this country who will tell you that in 2014, we live in a post-racial America. We have a black president, the thinking goes, so therefore racism can’t exist anymore.

SBO Tell that to Hank Aaron, who is the subject of a new wave of racist hate mail this month, 40 years after he received floods of racist mail when he broke Babe Ruth’s home-run record in 1974. The calendar may have a different year on it, and methods of sending racist prose might have changed — it can be emailed now — but the sentiment is unfortunately the same.

Bob Nightengale explains in a story published in USA Today on Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball, of all days:

“Hank Aaron is a scumbag piece of (expletive) (racial slur)” a man named Edward says in an e-mail to the Braves front office and obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

ผลบอลสด Before another umpire’s call and video review went against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night, manager John Farrell already was doubting the “validity” of the replay system being used by Major League Baseball in part because of what happened a day earlier.

ผลบอล SBOBET Farrell blew his top at umpires Sunday night after Francisco Cervelli of the Yankees was called safe at first base after a three-minute review, reversing the call made on the field in the bottom of the fourth inning. Instead of an inning-ending double play, the reversal allowed the Yankees to extend their lead by a run. The Yankees went on to win 3-2.
