Special Thank You to Number 42
Dear Academy Members and Friends,
April 15 is an important day in baseball history. Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier on this day in 1947. His brave soul stepped in front of a crowd of 26,623, some looking on in admiration, others burning with hate. Despite the racism Robinson faced, he had many accomplishments. His courage, dedication, and talent led to his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. To read more about the great Jackie Robinson, follow the link below.
