199 notes

In honor of World Photography Day, I want to share a photo I took last weekend at Smokies Park in Kodak, Tenn.
This image of Hall of Fame baseball player Jackie Robinson was on a “Character Counts” advertisement on the left field fence.
Robinson demonstrated grace and character when he became the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball. His jersey number (#42) was retired by MLB in 1997.
"I’m not concerned with your liking me or disliking me," Robinson once said. "All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."
