While Pasadena’s Rose Bowl has been around since 1922, Wednesday was a first in the great venue’s history. For the first time in its history, the Rose Bowl unveiled a commemorative statue. Fittingly, the statue is of Jackie Robinson, who went to high school in Pasadena and was a three-sport athlete at UCLA.
Today we honored the great Jackie Robinson, with the first commemorative statue at the #RoseBowl, and the only in the world of him in a football uniform! To top it all off, Vin Scully, celebrated his birthday today as the MC! #JackieRobinson #HappyBirthday #Vin pic.twitter.com/wAKFUCWIoM
