WURD Radio will host a SPECIAL broadcast on Wednesday, April 15th, 2020 from 10:00am to Noon on Reality Check, hosted by Charles Ellison. The broadcast commemorates the day that Jackie Robinson made baseball history by making a historic debut in Major League Baseball, breaking the league’s color barrier.
We celebrate Jackie Robinson as a representation of resilience, dedication, commitment, and perseverance. MLB also recognizes the day with an extensive and unified League-wide show of support which has included retiring Robinson’s number throughout the Majors in 1997; dedicating April 15th as Jackie Robinson Day each year since 2004; and requesting that every player and all on-field personnel wear his No. 42 during games scheduled on Jackie Robinson Day since 2009.
Tune into the SPECIAL broadcast on 96.1FM, 900AM, wurdradio.com, and WURD TV via Facebook Live and YouTube Live.
