Probably should just shut down the Yankees
The Yankees were one of the last teams to integrate, holding on to Jim Crow baseball for eight years after Robinson broke the color line. As far as I know, the team has never said or done anything to acknowledge the role the organization had in perpetuating racism in baseball.

A good article on the issue that debunks this unproven allegation. He even voiced outward support for black players when Robinson broke the colour barrier, these quotes are in this article.

Ty Cobb Was Not A Racist
Not sure Calvin Griffith was either. What he said might have been insensitive that's about it
