(Thanks to SoSG reader Ryan for the heads-up!)
Understanding that no one team can truly lay claim to a man's legacy, this quote nonetheless struck us as...odd. From "Martin Luther King III trying to become part owner of Mets" at the New York Post:
"It's fitting with the legacy of Jackie Robinson essentially transferring to the Mets; what better place to have African-American ownership than with the Mets," [TV executive and investor Larry] Meli said.
(Bolding ours.) At the risk of taking the bait, I'll just say this: Jackie Robinson was signed by the Dodgers, he spent his entire career with the Dodgers, and he won a World Series with the Dodgers.
