  • Black Diamonds AdWeek’s Best Sports Podcast of 2021

Congratulations to President Bob Kendrick on Black Diamonds being named “Best Sports Podcast” in Adweek’s 2021 Podcast of the Year Awards!

Dedicating each episode to highlighting the unsung heroes of baseball, Black Diamonds guides its audience and guest through the rich history of one of the most important eras of the game while explaining the significant role the Negro Leagues played in bringing the sport to today’s heights. Pairing the thoughts and opinions of current major athletes such as Patrick Mahomes and Josh Bell with Bob Kendrick’s expertise brings to life the stories of those who “overcame tremendous social adversity to play ball.

This partnership between SiriusXM and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum president and historian Bob Kendrick, showcases the history of the Negro Leagues, highlighting the players, people and events that shaped them, as well as spotlighting the leagues’ achievements and innovations during a time of segregation and inequality. Listeners will hear the stories of baseball legends like Jackie Robinson, Oscar Charleston, Josh Gibson and Satchel Paige, and important figures like Rube Foster, Effa Manley, Buck O’Neil and many more.
