Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Honors Tony Reagins

The Kansas City Star reports that the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum has honored Angels GM Tony Reagins with the Rube Foster Award (executive of the year). Congratulations, Tony! (Update: And a tardy thanks to Jennifer Hoyer at the Angels' front office for bringing this to my attention.)

On a related note, Jon Weisman points out that John Klima has a new blog, Seeds On The Dugout Floor, and an upcoming book, Willie's Boys: The 1948 Birmingham Black Barons, the Last Negro League World Series and the Discovery of Willie Mays. I'll be looking forward to it.

Update: In another related note, Tony Reagins will headline a benefit luncheon for the Boys' and Girls' Club of the Coachella Valley as part of Angels Day. Mike Scioscia will also speak at the event.
