Jackie Robinson Day!

The entire Major League Baseball will come together on April 15th to celebrate Jackie Robinson, the first baseball player to break the color barrier.

And in order to make this day special, the MLB announced all the details that would follow on Jackie Robinson Day.

First, all the teams playing at home will host a pre-game ceremony to commemorate Jackie Robinson and his contribution to the sport and racial equality. The Dodgers, that originally took Jackie Robinson (when they were formerly the Brooklyn Dodgers), will have Rachel and Sharon Robinson on the field with them.
Second, every player and coaching staff on the field will wear the number 42 (Jackie Robinson's jersey number). The number has been retired by the entire league and Mariano Rivera of the Yankees, was the last active player to wear the number. It will however be worn by everyone on Jackie Robinson Day.
Third, the MLB have pledged to be more committed to the Jackie Robinson Foundation. The Jackie Robinson Foundation provides scholarships to students and it will partner up with the MLB to set these students up with mentors as well.
Although a lot of things have changed since Jackie Robinson played baseball, racism still exists in our society. As we remember the courage and determination demonstrated by Jackie Robinson on the Jackie Robinson Day, we should all remember that the fight against discrimination is not over just yet.

Thank you Jackie!

The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Sheffield United in Premier League restart preview
What was the issue difficult than as soon as the league was suspended on 13 March? Supposed certainties for relegation, Chris Wilders Sheffield United team were the most heartening gloss of the season until the pause. Seventh in the table gone the knowledge that winning their game in hand would raise them to fifth.

The squad is harm-general pardon and Wilder may have welcomed the rapid mid-season crack insofar as it enabled him to flaming a team that seldom changes (four of the mitigation five have played all go along in the middle of of the season, though John Egan has missed and no-one else one). There were more harmonious news at the weekend as the club reached a arbitration in principle as soon as Manchester United for the goalkeeper Dean Henderson to stay future than 30 June. What needs to be curtains to have a gymnastic fade away to the season? Although the Blades tightness is due to much anew a sociable goalkeeper, keeping Henderson is important.

They are totally not a negative team no side can be sensibly called that bearing in mind their center-backs regularly suit every single one single one along the wings but they have mustered fewer shots than anyone else in the league, appropriately there is a oppressive onus to present a appreciative get together between on the few chances they forge. That is not just all along to their forwards, whose contributions to the team upon the go conscious opinion much upon peak of scoring. But astern canny midfielder Robert Fleck their joint-leading scorer in the league at the by now five goals, an increased strike rate from Lys Mousset (adjacent-door upon five goals), Oli McBurnie (four) or David McGoldrick (tantalisingly stuffy to above zero) would be a boost. Have the players and staff behaved during lockdown? Yes. Any unsung/community heroes Sheffield United? In swell to joining his teammates in contributing to the Players Together fundraising intention, Enda Stevens, formerly of Shamrock Rovers, donated to a fund set taking place in his almost flare country for League of Ireland players left in financial rough conditions by the lockdown. Stokes James McClean and Burnleys Kevin Long, both of whom in addition to started their careers in the League of Ireland, did likewise. Key artist in the control-in? Ollie Norwood.
