Dodgers, MLB honor Jackie Robinson’s centennial year

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Vin Scully joined the widow of Jackie Robinson to honor the player who broke baseball’s color barrier during Robinson’s centennial birthday celebration Monday night.

Scully greeted 96-year-old Rachel Robinson with a kiss after being introduced to the crowd, with Scully drawing the loudest cheers in a rare public appearance.

He stood behind Rachel with his hands holding her arms during the national anthem at Dodger Stadium. They were joined by Robinson’s daughter, Sharon, and son, David, who linked arms with their mother as they walked on the field.

An account concerning events of the day.

LEADING OFF: MLB celebrates Jackie Robinson Day

JACKIE ROBINSON DAY

Major League Baseball observes Jackie Robinson Day at ballparks all over the country. Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. All players, managers, coaches, umpires and other on-field personnel will wear Robinson’s retired No. 42. Members of Robinson’s family are expected to be at Dodger Stadium for the opener of a three-game series between the Reds and Dodgers.

Will we all wear #42 today as well?
