Happy Birthday Jackie Robinson!
Thanks to Google for letting me know that today would have been Jackie Robinson’s 94th birthday. I suppose it’s a fitting bookend for Black History Month in February. Considering Robinson was deservedly a first ballot hall-of-famer, his career, in baseball terms, was not particularly long. This is because he played professional gridiron for a short period and then served in the military during in World War II. A true legend in all respects the world lost someone special when Robinson died at the age of 53 in 1972.
