I do think the "black factor" has something to do with it. My reasoning...
Who is the one person who has his baseball number retired by every team in the Majors. That guy was a great player and he broke down barriers and he was brave but I would say what Pat Tillman did was braver. Shouldn't Tillman have his number retired too?
Valid point I suppose but Pat Tillman is a reach a s ar as on field accomplishments.LOok at Roberto Clemente greaat player and died doing a humantarian deed but was also a outstanding player
