Google Doodle: Jackie Robinson

Google:Jackie RobinsonjpIn celebration of Jackie Robinson’s 94th birthday, Google is sporting this image today. Although many people know he broke baseball’s color barrier in 1947, few remember that he became America’s first black sports announcer in 1965 on ABC.

I highly recommend What I Learned From Jackie Robinson by Carl Erskine if you’re interested in learning more about Jackie’s impact on the world.

I also recommend Trolley Dodgers if you’re interested in laughing a lot and learning how the Dodgers might have moved to Bloomington, Indiana.

Carry on, Citizens!
