SECOND BASE: "Game Changer"
"Game Changer" depicts a diverse group of Dodgers players waiting in line to shake the hand of Jackie Robinson, Ned Colletti's choice for The All-Time Dodgers 2nd Baseman. Dave Hobrecht's stunning painting is not only a tribute to Jackie himself, but also to all of the lives that he affected and is still affecting to this day.
By breaking down the color barrier in Major League Baseball, Jackie Robinson opened the door for players of all races, religions, and ethnicities to play the game they love at the highest level. Men like Sandy Koufax, Roy Campanella, Chan Ho Park, and Fernando Valenzuela (among countless others) were able to become a part of Major League Baseball and have successful careers thanks to the brave actions of Jackie Robinson. His legacy extends far beyond the diamond and will never be forgotten. This is a legendary painting for a legendary man.
