One of baseball's best rivalries takes center stage once again as the Los Angeles Dodgers battle the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. On this day, however, both teams will be paying tribute to legendary trailblazer Jackie Robinson, with all players wearing the historic No. 42. The Dodgers are using a huge payroll to try and retake the NL West, with ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw and budding superstar Yasiel Puig leading the way. The Giants have their own designs on a division title, with catcher Buster Posey and top starter Matt Cain carrying the load. Learn More

It's like professional wrestling on skates. It's not quite the roller derby experience we were hoping for. We were thinking it would be all-women and a little faster paced. But, the audience was as, if not more, entertaining than the derby.

Roller Derby has its roots in the Transcontinental Roller Derby in 1935, which simulated a cross-country roller skating race between teams of skaters. Over time, this race developed into the modern contact sport of Roller Derby. The San Francisco Bay Bombers are probably the most recognized team of the original Roller Derby franchises. The team name has been around since 1954, and today's San Francisco Bay Bombers are carrying on that legacy. They skate in the original Roller Derby style, fielding women and men skaters on each team alternating on the track. The playing field is a masonite banked track roughly the size of a basketball court, unlike many new leagues that skate on a flat surface.
