Geologica 42

A 40-foot spire of telescoping steel and bronze ascends into the sky and announces the entry to this station. Prominently appearing on the tower collar is the number 42, which commuters and sports fans alike will recognize in conjunction with the gold baseball as references to Jackie Robinson, a long-time Pasadena resident and the first African American to break the “color line” in professional baseball.
