In 1947, Jackie Robinson made his Major League debut, becoming the first African-American Major League Baseball player since the 1800’s. April 15th, 2009 is known as Jackie Robinson Day. Every Major League stadium celebrates, but the day culminates at Dodger Stadium. In honor of how far America has come since Jackie debuted, I feel justice would be done if our new President would be invited to throw out the first pitch.
Please sign the petition if you want to see Barack Obama on Jackie Robinson Day.
Oh, and excuse the typos. Once a petition is made, it cannot be changed. Sorry!
