Hall to offer Robinson special

The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown will celebrate the Legendary Pictures release of "42" with a special buy-one, get-one-free admission offer to the museum for moviegoers.

Those with a ticket from the movie documenting the story of Jackie Robinson may receive two Hall admissions for the price of one during the entire month of April.

To redeem the offer, visitors must present a "42" ticket stub when purchasing admission to the museum at the Hall's Main Ticket Booth. There is a limit of one offer per ticket stub.

Robinson broke baseball's color barrier when he made his major league debut April 15, 1947. He went on to help Brooklyn win six pennants and the 1955 World Series during his 10 seasons as an infielder for the Dodgers.

The Hall also will hold special programming Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Jackie Robinson Day) to honor the 1962 Hall of Famer. The museum’s signature program each day will be performances of "Jackie: Cross the Line!" at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Bullpen Theater. This one-man show presented by Greg Kenney also tells the story of how Robinson broke the modern Major League Baseball color barrier. Admission to the show is free with a museum ticket. Seating is available on a first-come basis.
