Here ye, here ye.
Let this date mark the moving forward of the Scorekeeping agenda.
Scorekeeping will officially become a social study this summer. This means me and 29 other people will be watching about a month’s worth of baseball, listening to broadcasters talk and taking note any time the words hustle and other variations are used toward any player of any race.
The goal of this study is to determine the use of the word hustle in common language–in particular among broadcasters–and whether it has any association with a player’s race. Examples and counter-examples will be used.
If you’d like to take part in this in any way, please post in the comments section or email me at sethamitin at gmail dot com.
