By Mark Palmer, Intermat Staff Writer – 6/14/2007

This spring, much was made about the 60th anniversary of Jackie Robinson being the first African-American in major league baseball. There were special ceremonies at baseball parks across the country, along with countless articles, TV news stories and commentaries, commemorating Robinson joining the New York Dodgers in 1947.

This spring also marked the 50th anniversary of a similar milestone in college wrestling history.
