    University of Cincinnati Baseball Players Want Racist Ex-Reds Owner’s Name Taken Off Stadium

    It’s about time

    Former Reds owner Marge Schott is one of the most virulent racists in baseball history—and that’s a tough competition.

    The four-word headline on a 1996 Associated Press article really says it all: “Schott Praises Hitler Again.”

    Again.

    The “Controversies” section of her Wikipedia page is over 1,000 words long, detailing her history of disparaging remarks against all sorts of people. Read Rick Reilly’s 1996 Sports Illustrated story and you’ll run out of fingers and toes trying to count all the remarks that would get a person banished from the game today.

    Her anti-semitism and frequent use of the N-word and other racial slurs while addressing team employees got her banned from day-to-day operations of the Reds in 1993 for one year. In 1996, after an ESPN interview that inspired the above AP headline, Schott was banned by baseball through the 1998 season. She sold the team in 1999 and died in 2004.

    So why is the baseball stadium at the University of Cincinnati still named in Schott’s honor?

    In 2006, Schott’s charitable foundation made a $2 million donation the Bearcats’ athletic department, which led the school to name its new baseball stadium after her. Now, current and former UC players are petitioning for Schott’s name to be removed from the ballpark.

    Removing Schott’s name from the stadium is a no brainer. She’s been dead for 16 years and has no surviving immediate family. There’s no one around to get mad when the school finally decides to strip her name off the building. Naming it after Youkilis is the obvious choice, and not just because it means you could shave a goatee into the infield grass.

    University of Cincinnati to remove Marge Schott's name from baseball stadium

    The University of Cincinnati will remove Marge Schott's name from its baseball stadium, citing the late Cincinnati Reds owner's "record of racism and bigotry."

    The university's board of trustees on Monday unanimously voted to remove Schott's name from the stadium and from the university's archives library. The decision is effective immediately.

    Former Bearcats outfielder Jordan Ramey started a petition earlier this month to remove Schott's name. On Tuesday, the petition was approaching 10,000 signatures. University president Neville Pinto also had recommended the removal to the board.

    The university's baseball facility was named Marge Schott Stadium in 2006 after the school received a $2 million donation from the Marge and Charles J. Schott Foundation.
