I'm 58 and ballplayers have an attraction to the forbidden fruit to be found typically in their respective neighborhoods.This may in part be the reason why many of them are attracted to women outside of their race once they make it. Otherwise, it's back to the hood. Another reason why they should be paid while in college or atleast their parents!
