Harrison Ford coming to Kansas City for 42 screening in April
Perhaps one of the most important lessons you learn at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is the role Kansas City had in Jackie Robinson’s career and, ultimately, the breaking of baseball’s color barrier. And on April 11, Hollywood is going to recognize Kansas City’s part in the story.
On Wednesday, the makers of the Robinson biopic 42 announced at the NLBM that Harrison Ford (who plays Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey), Robinson’s son David, and former Star sportswriter Joe Posnanski will all attend special advance screenings of the film at the AMC Barrywoods 24 theater. They are the only early screenings of the movie outside of Los Angeles.
