Posts I wrote about Jackie Robinson

There are a lot of things to say about Jackie Robinson and celebrating his legacy.

Frankly I am too tired to write anything.
Fortunately I HAVE written a bunch and I can link them all up here.

We honor Jackie. But if a few things in history were different, we would have been honoring Monte Irvin.

I don't understand people who are against everyone wearing #42. It's a great tribute.

The Red Sox COULD have signed Jackie Robinson. They didn't. And in 1947 Chuck Stobbs wore #42. That's almost as cool as Jackie.

Let's salute the greatest players who never got the shot to play in the majors before Jackie.

A specifically, I honor Hall of Famer Turkey Stearnes, who never got to play in the majors.

I wondered about a potential scenario that could have smashed the color line 9 years before Jackie.

Anyone who says today's talent pool is shallow needs to think about how Jackie Robinson changed talent forever.

Don't believe me? Check out how I created All Star teams in 2010 if segregation was still going on.

OK... I think that's it.
Thank you Mr. Robinson.
America is better because of you.
And baseball is MUCH better because of you.

In 2004, Meyer led an undefeated Utah squad to the Fiesta Bowl, becoming the first team outside of the six conferences with automatic qualifying bids to earn a Bowl Championship Series bowl berth. His 95-18 overall record gives him a higher winning percentage (84.1 percent) than any other active division 1-A coach with at least five years experience."Coach Meyer and I have talked this through and I realize how hard this was for him to reach this decision," Foley said in the release. "But, the bottom line is that Coach Meyer needed to make a choice th
