Rush Limbaugh Buys Negro Baseball League Franchise

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CAP) - Rebuffed in his attempt to become a minority owner of the National Football League's St. Louis Rams, conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is now attempting another avenue into professional sports by reviving the Negro Baseball League.

CAP News has learned Limbaugh plans to re-start the league, which ceased operation in 1950 shortly after Jackie Robinson began the integration of Major League Baseball, with original franchises the Indianapolis Clowns and Atlanta Black Crackers. He hopes to soon begin a barnstorming tour in which the Negro teams play in venues that approximate those of MLB squads.

"It will be separate, but you know, equal to Major League Baseball," a Limbaugh spokesman confirmed to CAP News. "Rush has no plans to intrude on the established monopoly of MLB and will have his players use all of their own facilities - bathrooms, dining halls, water fountains, baseball gloves, things like that."

Limbaugh reportedly turned to reviving the Negro League after several NFL players, and eventually NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, said it would be inappropriate for the race-baiting radio personality to own a team in that league where the majority of the employees are African-American.

Limbaugh, once again, staunchly denied that he is a racist, noting he is eager to increase employment of blacks in America, as long as the Democrats don't try to raise the minimum wage.

"He'd be happy to have them clean his house, tend to his crops, drive him around," the spokesman noted. "He'd even pay them to go to the drug store and pick up his prescriptions for him; perhaps even take their chances trying to score some at a discount on the street. He feels they are good at that sort of thing."

Asked whether the Limbaugh Plantation would be able to financially support a professional sports franchise, Limbaugh responded: "We would be able to hold salaries down by insisting during all negotiations that the white, liberal media was making out all these players to be much better than they really are."

Limbaugh even held out the possibility of President Obama joining his professional organization if he were to expand his reach to reviving the defunct American Basketball Association.

"The good news is that, if he went back to playing basketball like he should have been doing all along, nobody will care that he wasn't born in this country," said Limbaugh, citing former NBA stars Hakeem Olajuwon and Dikembe Mutombo as native-born Africans who "rode the boat" to success playing American sports.
