Former Pittsburgh Pirates owner Kevin McClatchy talks candidly for the first time on local television about being gay, owning the Pirates, and how it’s time for sports to change.
A former Pirates pitcher is one of the main villains in “42″- the movie about Jackie Robinson breaking baseball’s color line.
With the Jackie Robinson biopic “42″ hitting movie theaters and Major League Baseball celebrating Jackie Robinson Day on Monday, April 15, the man who broke baseball’s color line at Brooklyn’s Ebbett’s Field in 1947 has come alive once again to a whole new generation of people who might not realize what Robinson or his legacy means to our lives today.
In April of 1947 Jackie Robinson stepped onto the field and the game was changed forever.
Remember when statues of sports icons were reserved for men of true character?
