Tonight's wrap-up of the three game series between the Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Dodgers will be highlighted by many dignitaries in attendance to pay tribute to former Dodger Jack "Jackie" Roosevelt Robinson on what Major League Baseball has deemed Jackie Robinson Day.
He also spoke about why he thinks there are fewer African-Americans than ever playing at the Major League level since the color barrier was broken by Jackie Robinson and whether or not he thinks Pete Rose should be included in the Hall of Fame.
I often hear from friends and family that professional sports are not "important." That if people cared as much about their communities as a whole as they did about whether or not their team won or lost, the world might be a better place.
I say that sports aren't, ultimately, important -- except when they are. If the Mariners win tonight will world peace be achieved? Of course not. Can pro sports be a catalyst to affect social change for the better? Without a doubt.
