Jackie Robinson Strong!

As most Americans were remembering the anniversary of the Boston Marathon  tragedy, I was remembering Jackie Robinson. Today is the 10th anniversary that Major League Baseball has celebrated Jackie Robinson Day.

It is a day where baseball fans get to see their favorite player wearing number 42. A day where baseball pays tribute to the man who broke the color barrier line but more importantly the man who revolutionize the game with his base running.

As a Jackie Robinson fan I must say that I was disappointed that the Dodgers were playing an away game at San Francisco on this day. It was my tradition to go to Dodger Stadium when the Dodgers played on Jackie Robinson Day. It doesnt make sense that the Dodgers would be playing away from their fans on such a special day.

May this day be a reminder of what Jackie Robinson stood for not just as a baseball player but as a human being. Let it be known that as the nation remembers Boston we paused and salute someone who stood up in the face of adversity on this day: Number 42. Mr. Robinson. Thank you Jackie!
JACKIE ROBINSON STRONG!!
