Devin KharpertianNot even a month after Barclays Center, Brooklyn, and the Brooklyn Nets officially commemorated the Jackie Robinson Flagpole, it has disappeared.
The flagpole, which once stood in the grounds of former Brooklyn Dodgers home Ebbets Field, was commemorated at a Flagpole Dedication ceremony on December 10th, in an event attended by Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Jerry Stackhouse, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark, Jackie Robinson's daughter Sharon Robinson, and Bruce Ratner. The monument stands at the corner of Atlantic & Flatbush Avenue in front of Barclays Center and is still in the ground, but is now surrounded by caution tape and traffic cones, and the flagpole itself is gone.
A spokesman for the Barclays Center said that the flagpole will be "returning soon" but declined comment on the reason for its disappearance.
