Baseball player and civil rights pioneer Jackie Robinson once said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." Jackie Robinson faced and overcame great adversity and has served as a role model and inspiration to many throughout the years.
To celebrate the release of 42 and Robinson’s legacy, Warner Bros. is inviting you to tell the story of a baseball coach who – like Robinson – inspires you and your teammates to the best you can be.
Players can nominate a Little League, middle school or high school baseball coach and describe how the coach has made a difference in their lives or in their community. The winning coach’s team will receive a new set of baseball equipment, courtesy of Rawlings Sporting Goods. The sweepstakes ends April 11, so enter soon (see contest rules below).
Also be sure to catch 42 in theaters April 12, and watch the trailer below.
