I'm sure he could add alot on the subject because JR was at the first game Jackie Robinson played for the Dodgers in 1947 at Ebbets Field. JR grew up in Brooklyn and was a die hard Brooklyn Dodgers fan. I would imagine that JR is one of the few people still around who was at that first game that Robinson played in.

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives- Jackie Robinson
