Jackie Robinson Day was celebrated around Major League Baseball on Monday, honoring the 72nd anniversary of the legendary player making his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
As customary, every player around the league wore No. 42 during the 10 games to pay respect to the Hall of Famer who broke the color barrier:
Tonight, we’re all 42. Thank you, Jackie. #Jackie42 https://t.co/Bb3GZ0IQ0G
