Countdown to Jackie Robinson Day

469526Are you ready to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day? This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the day that Jackie Robinson broke the color line in baseball. On April 15, 1947, Robinson made his major league debut, thus opening the door to MLB for African Americans and players of other races.

This year, you can have new Jackie Robinson shoes from Adidas, a Daytona Tortugas‘ Jackie Robinson giveaway t-shirt, or a replica of the new statue of Robinson installed at Dodger Stadium. I’ll have more Robinson-related posts as we countdown the next few days.

I think Saturday’s gonna be a great day!
