Skip to comments.Phyllis Schlafly wants ‘foreign players’ out of American baseball

This foreign influx into our National Pastime may help explain why our youth is abandoning baseball. Youth who play baseball have declined by more than 40% since 2000, and some communities where baseball was once booming now struggle to fill teams. Television ratings for World Series games are less than half what they were three decades ago.
Baseball owners are doing the same thing that big corporations do bring in foreign labor to take jobs that should go to Americans. American baseball players are better, as the awards and Hall of Fame prove, but perhaps baseball owners think that foreign players are cheaper and easier to control.
It is time to cut off visas for foreign baseball players, and return our National Pastime to Americans.
This is a Zeb Colter line from WWE.
WWE Extreme Rules: Jack Swagger Vs. Alberto Del Rio (#1 ...
May 19, 2013 - We go to the ring and out first comes Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter. ... they should be called the Caribbean Cardinals because of the roster.

Speaking of Sport, How Lucky is Johnny Manziel?
The day he is fired by the worst team in the league, he gets an endorsement from Trump... Verry Exciting... Terrific...
Competitive sports are frowned upon in the US these days because the “Everyone’s a Winner!” nonsense can’t exist in situations where some kids naturally excel and others don’t.
Yeah. This is really at the top of my list of issues. /s
Sorry, man. This post is intended to discredit her endorsement of Trump and you were only too happy to get sucked into the exchange.
She’s 91, so may have dementia coming on. Fits well with Trump who, unfortunately, has no such excuse.
Trump was scouted by the Phillies and Red Sox in high school but turned them down because he wanted to do bigger things. I wonder if he will add commentary to this.
I used to have a kid in little league. Trust me, foreign born players in the Major leagues aren't the reason he's no longer playing organized baseball.
Just curious... What IS the reason he’s not playing. I have a kid in sports myself.
Juan Marichal, Roberto Clemente, Julian Javier, Luis Aparicio, and on and on and on.....
How about an original source that contain a quote. TIA
There’s audio of her reading this at the link as well.
Please tell me this is satire...
