Why Minor League Baseball Needs To Organize

This week we speak to longtime labor organizer, writer, and former head of TransAfrica Bill Fletcher about why the time is now for minor league baseball players to form a union. We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the collision of the #blacklivesmatter movement and basketball in Sacramento, a ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Sit Yo Ass Down’ award to the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball team and NCAA President Mark Emmert respectively, Kaepernick Watch, and more!
