Vintage WGN Interview: Branch Rickey tells Brickhouse he deserves no credit
In this vintage interview, Branch Rickey is interviewed by legendary WGN sports broadcaster, Jack Brickhouse.
Dean Richards, who helped locate the footage, is unsure of the year of the interview, but it appears to be from the mid-1960s.
During the interview, Branch Rickey says that he deserves no credit for Jackie Robinson’s baseball success.
Actor Harrison Ford plays Rickey in the new movie “42.”
