The planning has begun, as what would have been the 100th birthday of the legendary Jackie Robinson comes up just five weeks from now. It will be celebrated season-long in Major League Baseball, and certainly with many special events in both Socal and New York.

I've started this thread so we can post about those events.

That will be one heck of a celebration. I wonder how Pasadena will treat that.

UCLA will host several events honoring Jackie's legacy this year. Quite a variety of them are listed, which indicates to me that the university has put quite a lot of time and thought into the planning.

I'd like to attend the blood drive and donate some more blue blood in honor of his legacy. Smile

I had read an article on mlb.com about how his birthday was celebrated in baseball yesterday but I thought it strange they only mentioned in New York. I know that's where he got his major league start but still?

Has anyone seen the new Jackie mural in Echo Park?

Here's an article and photo from dodgers.com.

I had not until yesterday, but thanks for posting! I've really got to see it the next time I go to a game at the Ravine! Trying to figure out when that will be with the busy events of the next month to six weeks.
