Baseball nonprofit working to replace burned Jackie Robinson statue | NewsNation Now
Fire crews found the burned remnants Tuesday of a prized bronze statue of Jackie Robinson that was stolen last week from a public park in Kansas, authorities said. The statue, which was cut at the figure’s ankles, went missing Thursday morning. It honors the first player to break Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947. The baseball nonprofit League 42 in Wichita, Kansas is working with the community to replace the statue while the police investigate. Bob Lutz, the founder of the organization, speaks with "NewsNation Now."
