Happy Birthday, Jackie Robinson.

Painting by Graig Kreindler.

"He led American by example. He reminded our people of what was right and he reminded them of what was wrong.  I think it can be safely said today that Jackie Robinson made the United States a better nation."   American League President Gene Budig.


  1. Jackie Robinson Presente!

    What a hero! He bravely stood up and took the hits so that many could follow in his footsteps and for the greater good of humanity.

  2. It's a good thing to remember those who made a difference, and Jackie Robinson was indeed a brave man.

  3. We're in agreement, Kathy. A great man.

  4. Absolutely, Mark. I still say that the abuse he took helped shorten his life.
