The Spokane Indians, in partnership with The Black Lens and the Innovia Foundation, hosted the first King Carl Night on April 19 in honor of Jackie Robinson.

“It was a great evening of community and celebration with a walk-off win and fireworks to end the night,” senior vice president Otto Klein wrote in an email.

The North Central High School step team welcomed guests to the night, and special King Carl jerseys were worn by players and guests alike.

The next King Carl Night is June 19, in celebration of Juneteenth.

From each ticket sold, $1 is donated to the Sandy Williams Fund for the Carl Maxey Center. Tickets are at

Thank you to North Central High School’s step team and Coach Shamerica Nakamura for an exciting pre-game performance.
