In the video game MLB the show which is the only game I play occasionally on the PS five as I find it to be a bit educational…. There has been a new player inserted, a female baseball player by the name of Toni Stone.



There’s a bunch of cartoons depicting her and she is rated as a highly skilled player on the video game “MLB the show” …. So I thought to myself. OK let me try and find some videos of her in real life playing baseball in the Negro leagues. I’ve searched throughout YouTube and I’ve found nothing. There are no videos of her playing baseball to my knowledge, I would love if somebody can show that.

Now the cartoons or animated films depicting Tony Stone are your typical run of the mill left-wing messaging showing how she had to deal with white only spaces and what not. And while that is certainly true the direction of these is some very divisive in my opinion. None of them really ever acknowledge that slavery and racism was a worldwide issue. It was not a inherently white thing. There are these types of videos that are in someways pretty good and interesting.

Here’s a few ,




Again, there’s some interesting and positive messaging from the video above. Nobody can deny that. As a lifelong baseball fan, I like it. But I question some of the direction here. Really they should talk about the fact that racism and slavery are not inherent to the white man, black men owned white slaves throughout history. There were black racists. There are black racist. There are white racist to this day.

Most important I am asking if any anybody on this thread can show video of Toni Stone playing a Negro league baseball game. Not a cartoon not an animated depiction but real life video evidence. Let’s see how she played the game. Let’s see how she moved on the baseball diamond because it’s a fascinating topic. I think that people deserve a lot more than an animated cartoon.
 
Reportedly stone faced tremendous opposition from male black baseball players in the Negro leagues. Now this runs an opposition to what some modern-day people might say for the hell of it like “well the Negro leagues didn’t care what color or what gender you are”, which is what the host in one of the videos in the original post suggests.

Obviously this was the 1950s a different era when such ideas that men can get pregnant or similar were not in the mass media, or women playing in male sports or men playing in women’s sports was not part of our culture.

The bottom line is I’m asking folks if any of them can produce any videos of Stone playing competitive baseball. Because I do think it’s a very interesting topic and we deserve more than a cartoon.

Did she also strike out Ruth and Gehrig like Jackie Mitchell did?

no, both of those players were dead before stones time

Toni Stone was said to be a great talent in the game MLB the show 24.

It would be nice to see some video of her playing a competitive game. If you can show that great. Or if anybody can show that it would be wonderful.

Dude, they're yanking your chain. Stop wasting your time looking.

Well, I’m a lifelong baseball fan so it’s a fascinating topic to me.

What do you or other players know about the Negro leagues. How much of it was competitive baseball how much of it was barnstorming or exhibition type comedy shows.

You know like the Harlem Globetrotters for example sure they are Talented basketball players, but those are fixed exhibition games for show.

I’m trying to compile video footage of the Negro baseball leagues. I found one team the Indianapolis clowns take a look at this.



It’s actually kind of entertaining. But it looks like something for show for comedy. Now I’m trying to find serious competitive footage of the Negro baseball league. Post some footage if you have any.

Do you know if the MLB is incorporating statistics from exhibition games that may have even been fixed from some of the Negro leagues?
 
No matter what, the Negro Leagues were not MLB. It has been well known forever that the Negro Leagues had poor pitching, one study said at best of times it was AAA level, and at other times less.

And no, claiming some Negro League records are now MLB is just plain stupid.

Jackie Robinson was a terrific player, but he had played no organized baseball, then he went to the Negro Leagues and in that one season there put up a 205 OPS+, by far the highest he ever had in organized baseball.

Showing how mediocre the pitching was in the Negro Leagues. And shows that offensive stats from the Negro Leagues were put up against mediocre pitching and have no business being considered MLB level.
 
The Society for American Baseball Research has looked particularly closely at Stone's claim that she got a hit off Satchel Paige, of the St. Louis Browns, on Easter Sunday in 1953.[32][28] While no one has disproven the claim entirely, during the spring training when the exhibition game purportedly happened, there is no record of the Browns playing the Clowns.[7]


Lol

I doubt if the MLB has put much thought into this. It's simply politics, and they know it.

I had an interesting conversation with an octogenarian former Negro League player a few years ago. It was real baseball. The curious dynamic was that every team was essentially a minor league team peppered with a few major-league-talent players. The average players all thought they were all that, actually getting paid to play baseball and then one of those mega-talented players would show up and quickly humble the others. He said the talented players would show up drunk sometimes and still show up the others, they were that good. He also said he played against Willie Mays before Mays was called up to MLB.
 
Does it matter?

If it werent for the blm thing and blue haired freaks running around trying to shoe horn diversity into everything then she wouldn't be in the game right now and no one would care.

If they did this 10 years ago in a game I'd have thought "that's kind of cool they went to this trouble" but now with all the overly heavy handed diversity, equity, whites suck and blacks are mankind's saviors bullshit I get shoved in my face on a constant it actually turns me off and makes me not to want to buy the game at all when I otherwise would have.

Now if I buy it I will buy it used off eBay so the developers don't get any of my money.
 
Live for the now as a fan. The right as you age to talk about who was the greatest over eras is finished. Talking about championships still exists. As the years pass though there is no connection from one to another. We rent players now with a few sending many years on a team.
 
Tired of the non-stop overblown pandering BS to Blacks, LGBTQ sickos, Politicians paraded as heros, #42 over and over, hispanic cacuss-month, on and on it drones. We know, they are all the greatest. Everyone else is now forced to say it. Months long celebrations. Pure BS.

Not the Soldiers forced to stand in line and fire at enemy troops, Police pulling Children from burning hoes or cars, 17yr old kids de-boarding into 50cal German gunfire on DDay, the ones who made it thru to continue the fight, finally able to avenge the deaths of all the others. Those are real USA heros. Not some Black thug like St. floyd lol!

Get the deep state funk outa my face.

$60-$70 mil now for part-time players over 6mo seasons. Live TV keep ratcheting up the price, paying for the rights. Player pay in some leagues tied to TV money.

Live alphabet TV execs scared to death if they don’t pay up, Amazon or APPL will swoop in and take it all. Leaving TV with 90 Day Fiancess & the View.

I can’t believe what’s going on. I’ve seen some of the recent contracts in the NBA $315 million to Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics for five years.

Hartenstein Signed a three-year $85 million deal with the Oklahoma City thunder. He’s averaging under 10 points a game. Maybe he’s doing other things but wow. Where is this money coming from.

James Harden resigns for a two year $70 million deal. He’s averaging 16 points a game.

And there are other players seemingly average players getting 15 million or even more per year.

I heard it explained as Cable TV Money going up up up every contract (players pay tied to that money). if they (ABC NBC CBS ESPN TRU etc.) don’t pay up, Amazon or APPL will swoop in and take it all over leaving TV with shows like 90 Day Fiancée’ & the View. They have created a mess. Maybe next contract the owners can get out of it?

I wonder why you didn't mention the money white baseball players are making.
