Jackie Robinson statue stolen and destroyed in Wichita

Every April 15, MLB celebrates Jackie Robinson Day with every player wearing the number 42 as the league celebrates the ongoing legacy of Robinson breaking baseball's color barrier. But last week, vandals stole and destroyed a statue of Robinson in Kansas, leading to the community rallying together to restore it. A GoFundMe has been set up by League 42 Foundation to replace the statue, and as of Wednesday morning has raised over $134,000, nearing its $150,000 goal. Dodger fans, baseball fans really, will continue to outlast these vandals because all they offer is wanton destruction. Robinson's legacy cannot be torn down through a shotgun blast or a torn down and burned statute. All these vandals are accomplishing is strengthening the resolve of those who would honor and revere Robinson's legacy.
