FILM MAKES IMPRESSION: White Sox Owner JERRY REINSDORF viewed an advanced screening of the film and said it was “powerful.” He added that Ford has Rickey “down cold.” Reinsdorf: “It just brought back incidents that I remember like it was yesterday.” Reinsdorf was 11 years old when Robinson broke the color barrier, and he said he “absolutely” did not recognize the impact Robinson was making on the game and society. Reinsdorf: “Half my friends were negroes. It wasn’t a big deal. I just wasn’t that aware” (CHICAGOTRIBUNE.com, 3/20).
