Today is the anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson played his first game as a Dodger. The event not only made baseball history, but also became part of the American history textbooks. Every MLB team has his number 42 displayed at their ballparks and once Mariano Rivera retires, no player will ever wear that number again.
Vin Scully will be back to take part in the celebration and return to his microphone. The last few days are a little taste of what we fans will have to face up to once he is gone for good.
Bring out the brooms… it’s time to sweep the Padres.
