Celebrate Jackie Robinson Day with this beautiful sequence of Jackie Robinson stealing home plate in the opening game of the 1955 World Series at Yankee Stadium.
It was an electrifying moment as Robinson raced from third base to steal home just ahead of Yogi Berra’s tag. While the Brooklyn Dodgers would eventually lose the game 6-5, they would go on to capture their first championship in franchise history.
