  • This Day in Dodgers History: This isn't exactly Dodgers news, but it is relevant and important. In 1957 the Georgia State Senate approved a bill, introduced by state senator Leon Butts, that prohibits blacks from playing baseball with whites except at religious gatherings -- ten years after MLB had integrated. 
      "Anything that tends to break down the bulwarks of segregation must be forcibly met by this general assembly. We have a situation in Georgia which has come about because of a national situation. I am referring to the Negroes in organized baseball in this state. It is unfortunate that some few people would participate in the destruction of our institutions for a few dollars."

    “When we took our Dodger minor league team to Midland I knew, because of my growing up in Midland, that the players would have a great fan base and support to make their experience better,” Collins said. “When I was young, we always had great community support. It will be an honor to see and speak with so many people when I’m there.”
