Jackie Robinson

  • Print

....Today was Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball....if you happened to catch any baseball today you may have noticed all the players were wearing the number 42 in tribute of Jackie Robinson........Jackie Robinson was more than an outstanding athlete who practically changed the game of baseball with his base stealing/hitting/defensive skill set.....he not only broke a much needed to be broken barrior,  he did so while taking the high road.....and that is why he will always be remembered as someone worthy of having a regular season day actually named after  him.......he chose the high road by refusing to respond verbally or through the press when faced with so much ignrance fueled animosity.....no one would have blamed him in any way had he chosen to lash back.......instead he chose to respond with his play on the field....by stealing more bases than ANY player during his tenure and going to no less than 6 world series, winning one of them.....Rookie of the Year in 1947.....ML MVP in 1949....if you are a fan of the world's greatest game then I am quite sure you understand when I say this.....there will not be another Jackie Robinson....the respect I have for what he accomplished is immeasurable.  thank you for stoppng by as always...............  Rick
