Speaking4Him Podcast: #76: 42: The Jackie Robinson Story

“Branch Rickey: You think God likes baseball, Herb?
Herb Pennock: What - ? What is that supposed to mean?
Branch Rickey: It means someday you're gonna meet God, and when he inquires as to why you didn't take the field against Robinson in Philadelphia, and you answer that it's because he was a Negro, it may not be a sufficient reply!.”
