Below is a PowerPoint Presentation from a talk I gave today to the Lubbock Roundtable. It deals with the random nature of baseball – much more so than any other sport. It than discusses the Brooklyn Dodgers of the years 1947-56, the Jackie Robinson Years. It presents the key Dodger players of the time with particular emphasis on Robinson, the team’s greatest player. Robinson was not only a great baseball player, but was also a star in three other sports. Arguably America’s greatest all around athlete. Of course there’s no narration to go with the slides. You’ll have to supply that yourself.
