Today would have been Jackie Robinson’s 94th birthday. With that in mind, today the Dodgers unveiled a mini-statue of Robinson, Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella that will be handed out to the first 40,000 fans who attend the April 15 game against the Padres. That date will mark the 66th year since Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier.
Yes, the Dodgers pretty much rule at promotional giveaways. I’m still incredibly jealous about that Vin Scully bobblehead from last year.
