Ron Rabinovitz speaks at WHS for 'Legends and Heroes' event
Growing up, Edina resident Ron Rabinovitz idolized Major League Baseball great Jackie Robinson.
It was thanks to Rabinovitz's father that he was able to meet his idol when he came to his hometown of Wisconsin when the Brooklyn Dodgers took on the Milwaukee Braves.
Rabinovitz was just 7 years old.
That chance meeting between Rabinovitz and Robinson was the beginning of a friendship that spanned nearly 29 years.
