Baseball is for kids. And no one ever played baseball more like a kid than Jackie Robinson, dancing off 2nd base lie a flea in a frying pan, flapping his way over to 3rd in those baggy trousers driving the adults nuts like Dennis the Menace. That high pitched voice. I was a kid then with no idea of the exquisite contradiction that breaking the color barrier meant the end of the Negro Leagues. Just a kid like Jackie. This month’s cap comes from his brief encounter with the military (the story of which can be found in the intrepid annals of the Infinite BB Card Set) and after which he embarked on a career that finally got him to Ebbets Field, on Channel 9 and permanently in my heart.
