Jackie Robinson began a career for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, beginning an integration process in baseball that finally
saw every team with an African American player in 1959. This March, Civil Rights Game
tickets will be sold for a game between the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, and the Cleveland Indians, to commemorate
Jackie Robinson, and the Civil Rights Movement.
Major League Baseball tickets to the Civil Rights Game just came on the MLB tickets market
in 2007. Nobody knows the future of this event, but fans will agree that the spirit of the game, if not the venue or teams,
will be reverberated for years to come. The Civil Rights Game will be played in AutoZone Park in Memphis. Memphis is the home
of the National Civil Rights Museum and was the location of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.
Other than the fact that the game will feature the World Series champs, the St. Louis Cardinals, this game will also be
a part of a day-long celebration of the struggles and triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement in America. What better way to
be a part of history, then to spend it with loved ones in a celebration of the human will through sport.
