In today’s Daily Scouting Report, I will talk about what it would be like if Jackie Robinson was still alive.
- He would be 90.
- Most likely, Major League Baseball would not have retired his number on every team.
- Most likely, Citi Field doesn’t have a Jackie Robinson Rotunda,
- He would be harassed by the media today.
- African Americans probably wouldn’t play in any sport which would make basketball very different.
- Hispanics might not be allowed in the MLB which would mean that:
- No Jose Reyes
- No Johan Santana
- No Franky Rodriguez
- No Carlos Delgado
- No Oliver Perez (who I still trust)
- No Livan Hernandez
- No Carlos Beltran
- No Gary Sheffield
In honor of Jackie Robinson day, I have made my blog dodgers. I wish I could make it brooklyn Dodgers but that is not a option.
