FILE - This 1963 file photo shows Branch Rickey shown dressed for southern climates when he joined the Cardinals in Florida.  The home area of the late baseball executive Rickey expects increased interest in his southern Ohio roots from his depiction in the movie “42,” in which Harrison Ford plays the man who signed Jackie Robinson to challenge baseball’s color line.
