 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City's Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is hosting an advance screening of an upcoming movie about Jackie Robinson, who broke major league baseball's color barrier.
Thomas Butch of the financial firm Waddell and Reed announced Wednesday that actors Harrison Ford and Andre Holland will be among those appearing at an April 11 screening of ``42.'' The film chronicles Robinson's rise from the Negro Leagues' Kansas City Monarchs in 1945 to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, when he won the inaugural Rookie of the Year award.
Robinson's uniform No. 42 is retired throughout baseball.
Waddell & Reed is presenting the advance screenings, which will include a VIP reception with the actors a day before the movie's official release. Tickets to the screenings start at $42 with proceeds going to the museum.
