Jackie Robinson No.42

By bullpenbrian - April 15, 2010 - 1:00 am Leave a comment.

Bud Selig retired Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 for all teams in 1997.

Three years ago Ken Griffey Jr. asked Selig if he could wear the number to honor Robinson on April 15, the day Jackie made his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers–the commish agreed.

Now all players are invited to wear his number on April 15. Very cool.
