Baseball legend Jackie Robinson had ties to Austin | Austin

“I’m sure that part of the patience he had to exhibit in Major League Baseball was learned in Texas at both Fort Hood at Hutson-Tillotson,” said Dr. Terry Smith, L.D.H., Director of the Huston-Tillotson Board of Trustees.
In 1942, Robinson was drafted into the military. One year later, he was stationed at Fort Hood but often came to Austin. That’s when he met a 17-year old Lonnie Jackson at a drug store in East Austin.”I had my basketball shoes, tied together, hung around my shoulder,” remembered Jackson. “He said where you going with those sneaks? I said I’m going to the gym and so he said ‘may I go with you,'” Jackson recalled.
