The new film, 42, which hits theaters this Friday, April 12, tells the story of American hero Jackie Robinson who broke the MLB’s color barrier in 1947. Every April, players from all MLB teams don the number 42 jersey to commemorate and celebrate “Jackie Robinson Day.”
I’m giving my blog readers an opportunity to win FREE movie passes to 42 next week. I’ll be announcing the winner on this post Monday, April 15th, Jackie Robinson Day at the MLB (WINNER POSTED BELOW). Our prize package includes:
- Two movie money certificates to screen 42 which is valid at participating US movie theaters for you and a guest (most theatres except AMC accept these).
- Two 42 movie baseball caps
- 42 T-Shirt
- 42 baseball
Simply use my comment feature to tell me who your favorite sports hero is and why for a chance to win (sorry, because of the prize, this contest is only for my U.S. readers).
WINNER: I didn’t even want to attempt to pick a winner from this bunch… what an amazing cornucopia of great comments and entries. So we chose to just randomly draw a winner. Congratulations to Mike Ford, Youth Pastor from Franconia Mennonite Church in Telford, PA. You are our winner!
