Spectators and baseball fans attending the Colorado Rockies game against the St. Louis Cardinals pass and look at the statuette "The Player" dedicated in the name of the late Branch Rickey by the Rotary Club of Denver on Wednesday, June 1, 2005. Branch Rickey, known as "Mr. Baseball" became the first manager to break the color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson to in 1945. The award in his name sponsored by the Rotary Club since 1922 is given each year to humanitarians in major league baseball. The statuette of "The Player" was sculpted by artist George Lundeen.
