MLB correction overdue, elevates Negro Leagues to "Major League" status


MLB announced today it is officially elevating the status of Negro Leagues to "Major League", in a long overdue correction.

According to a tweet, from MLB:
MLB is correcting a longtime oversight in the game’s history by officially elevating the Negro Leagues to “Major League” status.

According to the Commissioner of Baseball, Robert D. Manfred, Jr.:

"All of us who love baseball have long known that Negro Leagues produced many of our game's best players, innovations and triumphs against a backdrop of injustice.
We are now grateful to count the players of Negro Leagues where they belong: as Major Leaguers within the official historical record."
