This is pretty cool guys. Check this out. The Dodgers have unveiled a new statue for Jackie Robinson day, honoring three Dodger legends from the Brooklyn era. The statue will feature Jackie Robinson, Pitcher Don Newcombe, and catcher Roy Campanella. The statue will be given away at the next Jackie Robinson day game on April 15th, 2013 at Dodger Stadium against the Padres.
The statue is commemorating the 66th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the Baseball color barrier, and Jackie Robinson’s 94th birthday which was yesterday. The statue will be given away to the first 40,000 Dodger fans in attendance. Take a look at the statue below.
Pretty cool huh? It;s not a bobblehead, but a statue. I am sure the collectors will love it just as much as the bobbleheads. by the way, there will also be plenty of Dodger bobbleheads given away this season. You can purchase tickets for the game at the Dodgers.com site. Happy belated birthday Jackie!
