  • Jackie had wheels, so big time power wasn’t necessary.  He obviously gave some up mechanically, with little lag and a loose barrel turn.  In terms of launch, his upright spine angle and aggressive move toward the pitcher created a lower trajectory, which was likely just a function of him executing the common swing type of that era. His out-of-sequence barrel (by today’s standards) cost him power but allowed him a higher contact rate - ideal for a plus plus runner facing defenses handicapped by sloppy fields and floppy gloves.

  • “Jack, meet Jackie”
•
Sometimes I get asked if Jack’s name comes from Jackie Robinson and the simple answer is no. I’ve always liked the name Jack and hoped if we ever had a boy, that would his name. However, Jackie Robinson had a lot of characteristics I wouldn’t mind my Jack having one day such as; being brave, determined, and strong just to name a few. •
thanks to @keira.emerson for coming on our adventure 🙃

  • #OTD in 1947, #JackieRobinson stole home in the #Dodgers’ 4-2 victory over the Pirates at Forbes Field. It was the infielder's first thievery of the dish, something he would accomplish 19 times during his ten-year career. Here’s a painting of one of those steals from July 2, 1950. #baseballart @dodgers
