Manic Media Day

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

It began calmly. Sheraton hotel assistants handed out thermoses of coffee to media members. Every coach bus seat held a delicious pastry boxed up neatly. At 7:30am, with the sun beginning to bathe Manhattan, police escorted these buses into Newark, NJ. No traffic. No noise. That quickly changed.

One on One speaks with Sharon Robinson

Saturday afternoon Mike Watts and I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Sharon Robinson, an author, education consultant to MLB, and daughter of Jackie Robinson. After seeing the film seven times she says, Sharon discusses the new film "42," her own memories of her father, and the current state of baseball. With a few books to her name, and a new biography out about her father, Sharon Robinson says she is looking forward to April 15th and is eternally proud that #42 continues to mean something today.
