Zaza Pachulia Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Former Major League Baseball manager Tony La Russa says he recognizes there are issues that affect the black community in the United States but takes some issue with what Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones said and questions the motives of?San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.Appearing on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on ESPN Radio on Wednesday, La Russa said that while he respects Jones as a person and a player, the Orioles outfielder was off base when he said baseball is a white mans sport.When he says its a white, like elitist, kind of sport, I mean how much wronger can he be? We have tried so hard, the MLB, to expand the black athletes opportunity, said La Russa, who spent two years working for Major League Baseball. We want the black athletes to pick not basketball or football, but want them to play baseball; they should play baseball. And were working to make that happen in the inner cities. We have a lot of Latin players. We have players from the Pacific Rim.Jones opinion on the lack of African-American players in MLB is supported by the leagues demographics. Only 8 percent of the league classifies as African-American, according to USA Today, with a total of just 69 black players being on the Opening Day rosters of the leagues 30 teams.La Russa agreed that there is an issue but said effort is being made.Its very difficult in the inner cities to get black athletes to play the game, La Russa said. So what [MLB is doing is] expanding the opportunity so the black athlete gets a chance.La Russa further said baseball is the smart choice for young athletes, regardless of race.If you pick the sport where you have all shapes and sizes, you can retire and not walk around crippled, its gotta be baseball, said La Russa, who is now the chief baseball officer of the Arizona Diamondbacks. But we have to provide the opportunities, but its not because its an elitist sport. Its because there just hasnt been enough playgrounds that have baseball. And thats goonna change.dddddddddddd It is changing because MLB is making it a target.Jones comments Monday are part of the broader topic of African-American athletes electing not to stand for the national anthem as a way of bringing attention to issues they feel need to be addressed in the U.S. Kaepernick started it by sitting during the national anthem during the preseason and has evolved his protest to taking a knee during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner.La Russa, who as a manager led the Oakland Athletics to three straight World Series trips from 1988 to 1990 and a 1989 title, says he really distrust[s] the sincerity of the Bay Area quarterback.I was there in the Bay Area when he first was a star, a real star. I never once saw him do anything but promote himself. And all of a sudden now hes a second-stringer and hes got this mission ... and I just dont trust his sincerity, La Russa said. And even if he was sincere, theres ways to express your belief in some of the issues that face blacks around this country without disrespecting the country you live in or the flag that it represents.Asked if he as a manager would let a player sit during the anthem, La Russa said he absolutely would not allow it.I would tell [a player that wanted to sit out the anthem to] sit inside the clubhouse, La Russa said. Youre not going to be out there representing our team and our organization by disrespecting the flag. No, sir, I would not allow it. ... If you want to make your statement, you make it in the clubhouse, but not out there. Youre not going to show it that way publicly and disrespectfully.While he said he would force a protesting player to stay in the clubhouse, La Russa added that he wouldnt keep that player from playing.No, hed play the game, but he wouldnt be out there sitting down, La Russa said. Hed go in the locker room and make his protest. ' ' '
