Basketball is the mainstream sport for Blacks today. As times change, what's cool changes with it. Baseball is seen more of a white sport for some reason, and not alot of people play it like they did before. It WAS America's favorite past time, but I guess that changed. It seems that Baseball is also more active in suburban communities nowadays...
