Truett’s Chick-fil-A Sports: Amid pandemic, a centennial celebration for the Negro Leagues. Baseball camps open Wednesday.

100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues: Leave it to Bob Kendrick to come up with another inspired idea to help raise the profile of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, which had grand plans to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Negro Leagues in 2020, many of which have been hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In keeping with the spirit of the Negro Leagues, Kendrick, the museum’s president, has been undeterred by these challenges and hit upon an idea to have celebrities, dignitaries, athletes of all sports — and anyone else who wanted to join in — tip their cap to the great players who were not given a chance to play in the Major Leagues until Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier with the Dodgers in 1947.

You know you’re on to something when four former presidents — Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — join in the celebration. President Carter issued a statement, while Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama submitted videos to www.TippingYourCap.com, the home of the project. Expanded story
