Quick Hit: Ground Broke on Jackie Robinson Museum

After ten long years of waiting thanks to the economy and our recent recession the ground has officially been broken in New York City at the future Jackie Robinson Museum landsite. In a ceremony last week Rachel Robinson, the wife and widow of the late Jackie Robinson, and their daughter Sharon Robinson broke ground on the project with Commissioner of Major League Baseball Rob Manfred.

The museum is set to be opened in the spring of 2019 and will be funded by the Jackie Robinson Foundation. The foundation has already raised about 23.5 million at the time of this writing and will look to raise $42 million in honor of the jersey number that Robinson wore during his playing days in the league.

You can donate to the cause online by visiting the Jackie Robinson Foundation’s website.
