African-American baseball players dwindle in prep ranks

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Acker says he has seen small changes already, even at a summer baseball tournament like the Heartland.

“It’s kind of interesting,’ Acker said. “Even last year, I think I was the only one from Maryland and there may have two or three others on other teams. So it’s kind of neat seeing us get into this sport. It’s a sport I love and I like seeing other people like me out here playing this sport.”
