Cyclones plan to rededicate Jackie Robinson statue

Sunday, August 18, 2013

On Monday, the Brooklyn Cyclones plan to rededicate a statue of Jackie Robinson that was vandalized earlier this month.

Racial slurs were found scrawled on the statue of Robinson and fellow hall-of-famer Pee Wee Reese outside the Cyclones Stadium on Coney Island.

The Department of Parks has cleaned up the statue, and a ceremony will be held before Monday's game.

So far there have not been any arrests.
