    Believe him? Or is this another bullshit story like his boyhood friendship w/Sandy Koufax, which Sandy doesn't remember?

    That man's career is one of the great mysteries, this should have been the height of his notoriety.

    This is the advantage of being old as dirt and all the first hand witnesses are dead and buried.

    Imagine the Bullshit this guy will spit when they thaw his head out in 2000 years.

    Is this the first time he's mentioned it? If so, it's almost certainly untrue. Seems like something he'd have been crowing about for years if it were remotely close to factual.

    It's possible, I suppose, but there actually weren't that many fans there that day, 25,000 or 26,000, and half of them were black. This may be a case of the Shot Heard Round the World, 40,000 people walk into the stadium, and half a million walk out.

    On a side note, for some real stories about Robinson, warts and all, check out any of Roger Kahn's terrific books on the Dodgers. He shows the real Robinson, the great and the not-so-great, and many of his forgotten Dodger teammates.

    To be fair, the charges were dropped.

    Also, he was 13 when Jackie Robinson first played for the Dodgers, so it is possible.

    He would have mentioned this before. Larry has a job waiting for him at NBC or MSNBC.

    He was pretty good on Norm MacDonald's podcast. But IIRC Norm said he was a jerk off camera.
