How to warm up 🔥
A warm up is arguably the most important part to any training session and yet I very rarely see people going through a thorough routine designed to get them properly prepared for the session ahead.
So... here’s a quick-ish (10-15 min) upper body warm up you NEED to be doing 💪🏻
#StoryTime#BlackHistory The Cannon Street Little League team, made up of 11 and 12 year old boys from the the Chareston area, worked hard to make it to the all-star baseball team in Spring
of 1955. Except, there was one hiccp.
They were an ALL BLACK team in a racist
south and all of the 61 other teams REFUSED
to play them despite laws integrating
So, they became champions by default, the next step would've been for the Cannon Street players to advanced to the regional tournament in Rome, Georgia. From there, the finalists would go to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.
But the Cannon Street All-stars never got a
chance to play; instead, they were prohibited from playing because they had advanced to the World Series by forfeit. So these 11 and 12 year olds watched from the stands as the crowd shouted on their behalf, "LET THEM PLAY!" They never did play.
That same year southern whites split
completely from Little League baseball
and formed a completly independent and
segregated baseball youth league called Little Boys
Baseball now known the Dixie Leagues. 👀
By the way, the same day that the all-stars traveled home, August 28th, news spread of another injustice done to a Black teen; this time with death the end result: Emmitt Till was brutally murdered.
