At-Game Recap: Jackie Robinson Day

The choir from Magic Johnson's home church, West Angeles Church of God In Christ, performs the national anthem.

The Bison and Han Solo share a laugh.

Harrison Ford hugs Sharon Robinson, Jackie's daughter.

Rachel Robinson is introduced to a standing ovation as Magic Johnson, Sharon, Don Newcombe and two of Roy Campanella's children look on.

Take a bow, Rachel.

Magic, ever the facilitator.

Ford gets ready to throw the first pitch.

Acknowledging his catcher, Don Mattingly.

Ford engages Tommy.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar after announcing "It's Time for Dodger Baseball!" When was the last time he smiled like that?

This...this thing should be a felony.

Attention scoreboard operator: Gotta space out those first three Ks. Please.

Great, it's now Klan night at the Stadium. On Jackie Robinson Day, no less.

Well done, scoreboard operator.

I did think it was weird that they were giving out white-hooded bobbleheads last night.

What the hell is Tommy doing in a red table cloth shirt?

Thanks for posting the photos.
