    I wouldn't mind seeing "greatest player" debates themselves separated out from general history.

Therefore, since the 19th century gets less attention, things about that era can be better served by keeping it in its own place.

    The history of Negro Leagues baseball would also be lost in the many discussions had a new forum not been created. BBF's "History" forum would be overwhelmed with many posts questioning or lauding the greatness of countless players and managers of the post. By making separate forums, these two important topics get to stand on their own.

    OK, YBF?
    I was just wondering.

    And I didn't think about the Teams of Yesteryear part. I didn't think about the Negro Leagues part. Of course those topics also belong to history.

    It was not my intention to eliminate the Nineteenth Century part.

    Quite an impulsive question. Clearly a matter of think first and then act.

    Case closed.

    IMO, nineteenth century baseball is a part of the history of our beloved sport.

    So are the teams of yesteryear. Guess we should eliminate that too.
