Scott's View: Baseball Season 2021: Why It’s Important for Veterans
We’re celebrating Military Child Month with a profile of Dave Roberts as VetFamily. Dave is the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers whose father served 30 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. I hope you enjoy reading his story.
Roberts is a "military brat" who has seen a lot of the world. A student of civil rights history in his sport, and a World Series champion, Roberts continues to inspire on and off the field through his knowledge of “America’s pastime” and his family’s military experience.
Let's not also forget that today is the 75th anniversary season of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in major league baseball. He stepped on the field for the first time in Ebbets Field on April 15, 1947. We honored Jackie in February for Black History Month, and you can read more about him here.
