[Movies] Former Jackie Robinson Teammate Upset Over Inaccuracies in 42
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.04.2013



TMZ reports that George "Shotgun" Shuba, the 88-year-old who once played baseball with Jackie Robinson, is upset over changes made to the film 42. Shuba was famously photographed shaking hands with Robinson after his first home run, which was also the first time a white player shook hands with a black player. The film shows Robinson shaking hands with two white men and neither are Shuba. 

Shuba said: "I just wish they would have portrayed it correctly -- April 18, 1946 -- when I shook hands with Jackie as he crossed home plate in his first home run ever."

His son added: "The producers should have done their research. Jackie was scared none of his teammates would shake his hands in public. That was a very historic moment that they eliminated."

Shuba is not looking for an apology; he just wants the real story known for younger generations who may not know about it.
