Jackie Robinson would have been 92 today. I posted this a year ago today It has some pictures that I took around including some from a library.
The end of the article from the Times magazine from1947 that I took a picture of is hard to read so here it is:
“After Slaughter did his spiking a month ago, a group of Brooklyn players came to Jackie and said “If they give you the works, give it back to them–and the team will be behind you 100%.” That was the day Jack Roosevelt Robinson won his long patient battle”
Happy Birthday Jackie!
