Flood of memory

July 04, 2009

With reports of free agents in the NBA and NHL this week, do any of these professional athletes who sign million-dollar contracts ever think of Curt Flood, or send him a prayer of thanks, or do they even know who he is?

Curt Flood was a man who took a very successful and lucrative baseball career and threw it under the bus for principle so that those that followed didn't have to endure what he went through. Maybe a standard professional contract should include a clause that the signer should know who Flood is, and what he started for pro sports.
