Hogwash, says I.
Agreed the moral code BS to keep out Jackson/Rose is laughable
- Ty Cobb was a violent racist
- Charles Comiskey was racist who prevented the color barrier from being broken by Charles Grant (Grant pretended to be white/cherokee but eventually his black ethnic roots were put out in publice by Comiskey and thus he was barred from playing in MLB)
- Tris Speaker and Cap Anson were members of Ku Klux Klan
