Italian Baseball Team Dons Blackface

The iconic baseball movie "Major League" turns 25 this summer and, naturally, you're probably going to see a lot of anniversary-related stuff out there. 

For example, Topps has already announced that it will be producing trading cards to commemorate the anniversary.  And, you can probably assume, Minor League teams across the country will be doing commercials that mimic the popular American Express spot from the film.

Not to be left out of what surely will be a crowded field, Italy's Crocetta Baseball Club has already put theirs together and the results, well, it's pretty spot on until, ummm…just watch.

About Shawn Anderson

Shawn Anderson is that guy who, instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him, is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown. You can follow him on Twitter at @HOVG.
