Jackie Robinson Community Center
The City of Pasadena Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department invites the public to celebrate the 105th birthday of famed baseball player and civil rights activist Jackie Robinson.
The birthday party will include self-guided tours of Jackie Robinson memorabilia. This exhibit is on loan from the Pasadena Baseball Reliquary which features a Grays jersey, Negro League baseball items, historical pictures, and a model of Ebbets Field. Members of Jackie Robinson’s family will be in attendance. Light refreshments will be served.
At 4:30 pm the public is invited to gather at the Jackie Robinson statue at the Rose Bowl Stadium for birthday cupcakes and free guided tours of the stadium and field departing every 30 minutes.
As the city recognizes Pasadena’s native son, it’s asking residents to join employees in wearing a Jackie Robinson baseball jersey or shirt, or simply the number 42, which was his jersey number.
