Words With Letters Dodger
Words With Letters Dodger – Through the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the National Archives, we are fortunate to see Jackie Robinson in his own words. They are inspiring, emotional, honest and often show his unwavering conviction.
Here are a few passages that can provide a small window into the heart and soul of one of the most influential figures in American history.
Words With Letters Dodger
A fan named Kay Wilbur corresponded with Jackie on numerous occasions and sent her letters of support. According to Craig Mueder, the Hall of Fame’s director of communications, Wilbur, who dedicated the letters to the Hall in 1997, didn’t expect Jackie to respond. But he did, and he explained to her what he was trying to accomplish;
The Blueprint: Dodgers’ Balanced Approach In Team Building Is Exactly What The Red Sox Aspire To
I sincerely hope you don’t change your mind about me, Mrs. Wilbur, but you must understand that there are many people who are asking us to continue our fight for equal rights. I want you to like me, but I think it’s more important to like me, and the only way I can do that is to live with myself. It would be awfully hard to do that if I didn’t do and say what I felt. I hope you understand my position.
One fan was overjoyed to meet Jackie and let her know how much it meant. A fan wrote to Jackie to explain its significance. Jackie wrote back in 1956:
I think if we as ballplayers realized the reaction the average fan gets from meeting a ballplayer, we would react differently. … Your letter and your husband gave me a great shock to know your reaction. It really is such a small thing to do and to receive such a lovely letter makes me realize how much more I need to do.
A fan approached Jackie, explaining that during the wild celebration following the 1955 World Series victory, he collected the great Dodger cap and kept it as a souvenir. He wrote to Jackie saying he would return the hat if Jackie wanted it. Jackie’s response in November 1955, a month after the World Series.
Letters: Dodgers’ Fans Don’t Want To Get Ahead Of Themselves
I don’t know how to put it, but I want you to know that your enthusiasm makes me feel good, and if the hat adds to your excitement for the series, I certainly want you to keep it up.
After her playing career, Jackie continued to be an important voice for equality. And he wasn’t afraid to use it, even with President John F. Kennedy in 1961.
I thank you for what you have done so far, but it is not about how much has been done, there is still much to be done. I would like to be patient, Mr. President, but patience has brought us years in the struggle for human dignity. I will continue to hope and pray for your aggressive leadership, but I will not refrain from criticism if the feeling persists that Civil Rights is not on the agenda for the coming months.
Jackie was grateful. And he wanted the man who scouted him for Clyde Sukefort to know how much he contributed to what he called “the experience.” Jackie wrote these words months before her death.

Although your significant contribution to the Rickey-Robinson experience has not been said enough, I consider your role next to Mr. Rickey’s and my wife’s, yes, greater than any other person I have come in contact with. I have always considered you one of the true giants in this early baseball endeavor, for which I am truly grateful.
Finally, this letter is not in the Hall of Fame or the National Archives. It was a letter that was sold at Heritage Auctions in 2012. The letter appears to be a response from Robinson to a Syracuse University student and is dated May 2, 1952. Robinson offers his thoughts on why people enjoy baseball. And the entire letter resonates today, given the current state of our world. Words: Manuscript Kershaw’s stats from every game of the 2014 season on Word Art.

Thanks, Bill Plaschke, for bothering the 2019 Dodgers. Like last year (but in reverse) when you panicked in May, burying the Dodgers 50 games and then watched them go to the World Series again.
This year, the Dodgers need to avoid your opinion like the plague, stay focused and grind it out. There are no championships to be won in April and May. There is no reason to panic last year and celebrate this one yet.
Mason’s Musings: The Dodger Stadium Experience
Is it too early to blame Dave Roberts and the Dodgers front office for their collapse in the 2019 World Series?
While I also share Bill Plaschke’s confidence and enthusiasm in the Dodger club this season, his reasoning and hyperbole (what’s new?) just don’t add up. This team feels exactly the same as the winners of the previous two stakes: strong starting pitching, good power and an oh so scary bullpen leading up to Kenley Jansen. And even with Clayton Kershaw in his prime, the ability to produce runs could make up for it, especially once again in a relatively weak National League.
Bill, 42-19 is a great start, but the Dodgers went 43-7 in the heat of the summer in 2017 and still didn’t win it all. And no one but you sees the inconsistent Kenta Maeda as a true #1.
So Bill, as Cody B. can attest, let’s remember to keep the “pink champagne on ice” for now, because once again this season “could be heaven or this could be hell.” Again. All patient, die-hard Dodgers fans already know after 31 years of waiting that “we can check in, but we can never leave.” Go blue.
Clayton Kershaw 2014 Mvp
The Dodgers are so good at developing and finding talent and winning games. In fact, they have only made one bad move in the past few years. If the Dodgers had paid Zack Greinke to stay, they probably would have defended the World Series twice instead of finishing second twice.
For now, it looks like the Dodgers will repeat history by not pursuing Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel. Incredible considering the millions they get from their TV deal.
In the memorable words of Kenny Rogers, sometimes you just gotta fold ’em. The Angels brain trust should heed these words and ditch the Trevor Cahill and Matt Harvey pitching experience.
They already showed in June that they can no longer deliver. Why not go with promising youngsters like Canning and now Suarez? They may not have proven their worth yet, but at least it’s a good chance, unlike the failed results of the first two disappointments.
A Love Letter To Dodger Stadium
Does anyone in the Angels front office understand that pitching wins games? I think not. Year after year, it’s the same mediocre starting lineup that ensures the Angels don’t have a fighting chance. It’s crazy.
Mark Stevens’ unprovoked shove of the Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry was bad enough. As I continued to read the story and learned that Mr. Stevens is on the USC Board of Directors and a major donor to the university, I was no longer surprised by Stevens’ arrogant behavior.
Ever notice that when something shakes?
