My dad isn’t so much a baseball fan as he’s a 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers fan. Today, whilst driving back through upstate New York on the way back to Chicago from Montreal, QC, Canada.
I learned more about Jackie Robinson and the integration of Major League Baseball and Brooklyn, NY in the 1950s and his grandpa’s farm on Long Island and all his cousins than I ever thought I’d know. My dad is a great storyteller. I haven’t seen as animated as he was today in a very long time.
Plus: I got a Jackie Robinson Brooklyn Dodgers jersey. I’m sure I’ll be wearing it around Mpls over the next few weeks.
