Jackie Robinson is well known for breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. In this episode, we discuss Robinson's impact on America off the baseball diamond. Katy Lasdow, Assistant Public Historian at the Brooklyn Historical Society, discusses the new exhibition “Until Everyone Has It Made: Jackie Robinson’s Legacy”.
Daniel Yanofsky, New York Mets beat writer for Double G Sports, also joins the show to think of Robinson's legacy in context of the MLB today. We chat everything from the retirement of Jackie's number in all of baseball, to what Robinson might make of the diversity in the game today.
