In his new book '108 Stitches,' former MLB player Ron Darling shares his experience coming up in baseball's minor league system. He explains how the culture surrounding the success of minor league teams creates a difficult situation for young players to navigate.
Ron Darling inspired by Kaepernick to speak out on Dykstra racism
In his new memoir, "108 Stitches," former Mets pitcher Ron Darling recounts that Lenny Dykstra shouted racial slurs at Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd during the 1986 World Series, a claim that Dykstra denies. Darling stopped by SI Now earlier this week to explain why Colin Kaepernick's protest prompted him to share the story, and why he's disappointed in his own reaction at the time.
