Happy Birthday Jackie Robinson

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!
