Jackie Robinson will be back in the infield as the movie “42” is shown at Jackie Robinson Ballpark Friday, Feb. 28.

The Daytona Cubs will open their concession stand at 5 p.m., and the movie will be shown at dusk. Moviegoers will watch the free screening from the stands.

The popular 2013 film tells the story of Robinson, who played at the ballpark in 1946 when it was named the Daytona City Island Ballpark. The following year, Robinson signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers, becoming the first African-American to play in American Major League Baseball.
