BROOKLYN - Baseball fans are fondly recalling Jackie Robinson's contributions to the borough as a movie honoring his work hits theaters across the country.
Robinson, who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1947 through 1956, lived at 5224 Tilden Ave. in East Flatbush. More than 40 years after his death, city officials are trying to preserve his home as a landmark.
Fans are also heading to a statue of Robinson outside MCU Park in Coney Island, home of the minor league Brooklyn Cyclones.
As for Ebbets Field, where the Dodgers played until moving to Los Angeles, a plaque stands to commemorate the ballpark's location.
