ALBION – A movie poster, top left, for the new film, “42,” shows Pee Wee Reese, No. 1, with his arm around Jackie Robinson, No. 42. The movie focuses on Robinson’s 1947 season when he broke the Major League Baseball color barrier playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Two Albion twin brothers, Edward and Jackson Narburgh, watched the movie and were inspired by Robinson’s courage and skills on the field. The brothers also are seniors on Albion’s baseball team that is again competing for a league title.

Edward wears No. 42 while his brother has No. 1. At a recent game, their teammate Steven Stauss snapped a photo that looks strikingly similar to the movie poster.

Edward and Jackson’s mother, Leanne Serrato, has shared the photo on Facebook. She is sad the boys’ senior year is winding down, but happy to see the team doing so well this year. She said the photo reflects the bond they’ve formed on the field.
