In Part Two of "Breaking the Fix: A Story of Segregated Baseball in South Africa" guest host Jerome Allen looks at the current state of Coloured baseball in the Cape Town area and the rest of South Africa through the lens of the Athlone Athletics and what the future holds for the South African pastime. Sports historian Lou Moore of Grand Valley State University continues to demonstrate how the history of the Negro Leagues and the classic issue of finding field space mirrors the Athlone narrative, while recent A's Ricardo Siljeur and Darren Wedel discuss the state of the game in South Africa and their hope for the future.
