  • Jackies debut

    Hello Brooklyn Dodger fans. I have a question about Jackie Robinson's debut.

    Can anybody tell me how the atmosphere at Ebbets Field was on that day? Were there any animosities towards him, or did the fans just accept him?

    Thank you.

    I was to chicken to cut school to go to the game, and I don't think anyone here was old enough to remember it. I can tell you my friends and I were more concerned about who was going to manage the team since Durocher had been suspended, we all just thought that Jackie was the first Black player good enough to be in the major's, sounds funny saying that now, but we didn't pay any attention to the Negro Leagues in those days.
