Lucky 42

Tonight was a special night thought Major League Baseball as we honored the legacy of Jackie Robinson.  67 years ago today, Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues with the Brooklyn Dodgers and broke the color barrier at Ebbets Field before a crowd of 26,623 spectators – aproximately 14,000 of whom were African-American.  For the game today, baseball families came together to remember his lasting legacy with every payer and coach wearing number 42 to celebrate the diversity and connectivity of our National Pastime.
