LEADING OFF: Dodgers to unveil Jackie Robinson statue
The statue will be the very first one installed at Dodger Stadium and the first 40,000 fans will receive a smaller replica.
It's been 70 years since Jackie Robinson's first game in the Major Leagues.
"Each of the statutes, and given their location, reflects the totality of the man". Robinson went 0-for-3 in his debut, won 5-3 by the Dodgers.

Fittingly, Jackie Robinson is the first to be honored with a statue at Dodger Stadium. In 10 Major League Baseball seasons, he batted.311 and was honored as Rookie of the Year (1947) and Most Valuable Player (1949). That Strawberry is still so recognizable nearly 20 years after his retirement speaks to an era in which baseball really was America's pastime, and possessed stars who transcended the sport. Jackie's prominence in social history also garnered him the coveted Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously in 1984 from President Ronald Reagan. It was just one of many obstacles Robinson would overcome in his Hall of Fame career. This is the third straight year UCLA has unveiled special Jackie Robinson-inspired jerseys to honor his memory. According to USA Today, the timing of the statue's debut couldn't be more imperative.
Marty pointed out that Robinson helped change the way the game was played in the Major League's as well, making it a faster game. According to USA Today Sports, only 7.1 percent of the current Major League Baseball players are African American.
