They are celebrating 100 years since the start of the Negro Leagues. Wouldn't it be great of SDS helped celebrate this by giving us some these great players. Wouldn't this also nicely align with BLM and help today's generation get to know these pioneers of the game?
Great idea. Would probably have to get roster creators to do it though.
Not likely to happen, but that would be amazing!!!
I actually was working on jersey designs for my favorite Negro League teams before taking a break from the game. Already had some players created/edited as well. Would be nice to have some Negro League cards in the game. Even better would be to add their names and nicknames to the list.
I recommend visiting the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO, while we're on the subject. It's really cool to see some of the old gloves they used, and jerseys too.
I definitely plan to once this COVID mess is more under control. I also have quite a few books and reference materials on the Negro League that I use to create the players
I promise you they are looking into it. Who knows if it will happen?
