Dodgertown to host Jackie Robinson Celebration Game
PHOENIX -- The first Jackie Robinson Celebration Game will be played Tuesday at Holman Stadium at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Fla., matching Class A Advanced Florida State League teams Lakeland (Tigers) and Brevard County (Brewers).
Net proceeds of the game will benefit the United Way of Indian River County (admission is $5).
Fay Vincent, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball from 1989-92, will address the crowd pregame about the Hall of Famer Robinson.
The game is being played on the same date Robinson broke the color barrier 67 years ago, now recognized as Jackie Robinson Day across Major League Baseball.
