Tonights InstaPic and Some Jackie Robinson Trivia

Before I start, I must say it was sure nice for the offense to show up today. I know it’s inly April but hey, a 6 game losing streak will always have us fans on edge. Heck, I know some of you are calling for Mattingly’s job. Hopefully today will be the start of good things to come. However, we’re going to have to do it minus Grienke for at least 7 more weeks, and now Billingsley for at least another 2 starts. ( So much for our depth in starting pitching right now… ) OK, tonight’s InstaPic…


And now tonight’s trivia. This mural, dedicated at Jackie Robinson Stadium last weekend, depicts every organization that Jackie was ever associated with, including his time with the U.S. Army. I’m sure many of you are aware that prior to his Brooklyn days he played for the Dodgers minor league affiliate Montreal Royals and of course the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues. And of course you know that he was also a UCLA Bruin in 4 sports. OK, now the question… What does the horse in the lower left corner of the mural represent ?
