Drew and The Athletic's deputy managing editor Marc Carig sit down to voice their thoughts on Baseball Reference including Negro League statistics into their database, a step towards recognizing an era in baseball that goes unnoticed more than it should. The duo share why this decision is a positive impact on the game, and what further steps should be made. Though the conversation is buttressed by optimism for the future, there are still pitfalls and shortcomings MLB and other chroniclers need to recognize to keep propelling this movement forward.
