Baseball is a very storied sport, and each season is memorable in its own way. The league itself is also very storied for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is players fighting for equality.
Since the National League came into existence in 1876, players have fought for better pay, protection from owners, and some sort of organization to represent their values.
From not having a voice to calling their own shots, this is the story of the players’ fight for equality.
