JACKIE ROBINSON ROTUNDA
This landmark partnership between Citi and the Mets has accelerated their significant commitments to the community with new resources to develop and launch outreach platforms and programs in and beyond New York City, involving both Citi and the Amazin' Mets Foundation.
As the first step in this effort, the Mets and Citi commissioned a sculpture and named the entry rotunda of Citi Field - inspired by the classic design of Ebbets Field - in honor of Jackie Robinson, the legendary pioneer and great American who broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. The partnership aims to recognize and perpetuate, in and around the rotunda and the community, Robinson's legacy and the "nine values" he embodied as articulated by his daughter and Jackie Robinson Foundation Vice Chair, Sharon Robinson: courage, integrity, determination, persistence, citizenship, justice, commitment, teamwork, and excellence.
