Dodgers Legend Reggie Smith Recalls The Time He Met Jackie Robinson

Dodgers legend Reggie Smith joins David Vassegh to talk about Jackie Robinson

I got a chance to meet him at the Martin Luther King game at Dodger Stadium. When we were flying out when the game was over, I saw Jackie coming down the aisle of the plane and he was coming back towards me.
I have never been intimidated by a player or anything but I had that little boy feeling feeling of meeting my childhood hero that is sitting next to me. He told me "I know who you are" and that meant so much to me. He said I like the way you play, I like the things you stand for. He told me "keep it up young man."
