The Associated Press reported (12/13/47, The Post Standard, Syracuse, NY) that
baseball great Jackie Robinson was going to become a professional wrestling referee in
California.  With Los Angeles promoter Cal Eaton making arrangements, Robinson got
his referee license from the California State Athletic Commission, and was going to debut
"next Wednesday" at the Olympic Auditorium.  He was going to officiate the Dutch
Hefner-Sandor Szabo bout, and further dates were being worked on.
