Seventy six years ago this spring, Jackie Robinson made history for the Brooklyn Dodgers – helping fulfill baseball’s destiny as America’s National Pastime.
As many schools in the northeast pause for Winter Break, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates Robinson’s heroic journey – along with countless other milestones – in honoring Black History Month.
The Cooperstown shrine hosts special daily programs for kids of all ages Feb. 20-24 as part of Presidents’ Week. Families can experience unique Museum artifacts and learn about the history of Black Baseball and participate in programming throughout the week. The museum will also highlight the connection between Presidents and the American Pastime.
All events are included with Museum admission.

Kansas City Monarchs teammates Jackie Robinson and Satchel Paige were scheduled to play together on Oct. 24 1945, against Kent Parker’s Major and Minor League All-Stars. But when Robinson signed with the Dodgers the previous day, he became unavailable for that game. (National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum)
