Celebrating Jackie Robinson Day

Today, 69 years after breaking baseball's color barrier, the world celebrates the icon.

Jackie Robinson's impact on the sports landscape and the civil rights movement as a whole will not be forgotten. Jackie Robinson Day is more than a celebration of the man and his accomplishments on the field. Today is a day of celebration of a huge moment in sports history. Jackie successfully crossed a bridge that no one before him ever did.
He opened the door for people of color to be fully integrated into baseball.
Thank you for everything Mr. Robinson!
