NEW YORK --- It's finally opened!  After 14 years of all sorts of delays, the Jackie Robinson Museum opened in Lower Manhattan today after a ribbon cutting ceremony by Robinson's 100-year-old widow Rachel.

The museum contains personal artifacts and memorabilia of the man who broke the major league baseball color barrier in 1947 by joining the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Beside Rachel, Jackie's 72-year-old daughter Sharon and 70-year-old son David attended the opening. The museum has more Robinson memorabilia than the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Retired NY Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia, at the opening ceremony, observed "that without Jackie, I wouldn't be standing here and I would have never been able to live out my dream by playing in the Major Leagues."

The museum charges admission prices of $18 for adults and $15 for seniors, students and children.
