I watched the MLB network some this afternoon, MLb put out a statement today saying that he was born in Cairo, Ga......He was actually born 9 miles below there in Beachton. MLB did donate some money a few years back to a group in Cairo to help them build a Jackie Robinson museum, but as of last week when I was in cairo, it had not been built. Another group has tried and tried to get MLB to donate money to make his birthplace a historic site.MLB has refused over and over.....


watched Cliff Floyd talk about Jackie, would've been nice if Floyd had said that he had visited Jackie's birthplace, but he didn't so I doubt he's ever been there. Floyd played for the Albany Polecats which is only 50 miles or so from Beachton......Sad that Jackie's homeplace is not better taken care of and promoted. Both times that we've been there we were the only ones there.....
