Jackie Robinson’s impact on baseball is indisputable. It never occurred to me previously to search for his Hall of Fame speech, but the thought finally did come to me last night, and I’m glad it did. His speech is short, but it is spoken with a grace and humility that depicts how he was able to endure the trials of his playing days. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962.
One thought on “Jackie Robinson’s Hall of Fame induction speech”
“a grace and humility that depicts how he was able to endure the trials of his playing days.” I think that about sums him up. Well said Precious. The only thing I would add is a never ending courage to push the envelope even further. You mentioning the HOF induction speech inspired me to watch the PBS special on Jackie a second time.
