Jrobinson, LuckApril 15 is deemed Jackie Robinson day. On this day, baseball athletes around the country pay homage to the man who ended helped end segregation in Major League Baseball, Jackie Robinson.

When people tell you to “turn the other cheek” it is a lot easier said than done. Mainly because people will still crack you in your jaw when you aren’t looking.

I wish some of today’s athletes could walk in Jackie Robinson’s shoes just for a day or in some cases just a few hours back when he broke the color barrier in baseball.

I wonder if that would change their perspective on things today?

Since, they can’t do that hopefully they will go see the movie, to get a glimpse into what he had to deal with.

Off topic is their a trailer that doesn’t have a Jay Z song in it?
