Thank You Jackie Robinson
I have been mulling over how to honor Jackie Robinson because today is the 60 year anniversary of his breaking into the major leagues.
I am not old enough to have seen Jackie play but I wish that I could have. It must have been incredible to see him steal home.
However I am old enough to understand the significance of what he did and to appreciate the tremendous courage and strength he possessed.
Philly.com has a series called Remembering Jackie Robinson that I urge you to read.
Here is another link to a series of information about him.
Thank you Jackie.

So very true.

It was a shame that there had to be a Negro league to begin with because there were so many good players that would have further advanced the game’s skill set and strategies.
