This Day in History
On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson becomes the first African-American player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in
Brooklyn to compete for the Brooklyn
Dodgers. Robinson broke the color barrier in a sport that had been segregated
for more than 50 years. Robinson's number (42) was the first-ever number
retired by all teams in the league.
I hope to see you here!
