Celebrating Jackie Robinson Weekend

Unlike many of you, I haven’t had the chance to check out 42 yet.  However I did get a chance to see an unveiling of a new mural for him at Jackie Robinson Stadium before yesterday’s baseball game between UCLA and Loyola Marymount.  The mural, by artist Mike Sullivan, stands next to a statue of Jackie Robinson along the 1st base concourse.  Speaking of statues, hopefully we will see one soon at Dodger Stadium honoring the man who played his entire MLB career for the Blue.  Here are some pics.  More on my Jackie Robinson weekend later this week, including some recaps from tonights events at Dodger Stadium and my take on the movie 42.  For now, here are some pics.  Enjoy !!!!
