Listen to Dodgers and Rangers players talk about the life, leadership, and legacy of Jackie Robinson and what he means to them. Mookie Betts, Dave Roberts, Chris Woodward, Tony Beasley, AJ Pollock, Willie Calhoun, Elvis Andrus, and Clayton Kershaw all make an appearance in the video to talk about 42 on Jackie Robinson Day.
Kershaw hits the nail on the head in talking about the impact of Jackie today, as the Dodgers and Rangers get ready to play on his day.
This year especially it rings true just to what Jackie Robinson meant for the game, just understanding what he had to go through, and what people, unfortunately, are still going through today. It’s just a really special thing for me to get to be a part of. And I hope now more than ever, we can continue to move forward with what Jackie Robsinson started, and continue to integrate the world in a better way.
Well said by the Dodgers long-time team leader and ace. The Dodgers and Rangers are set to start a series tonight in Texas that will go through the weekend.
