April 15 is the anniversary from the first day that Jackie Robinson debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.


ackie Robinson Day was severely overshadowed by the Boston Marathon bombing, but the Yankees were able to give No. 42 the proper salute last night! It was almost as if his spirit was in Yankee stadium?! Check this out: Robinson Cano hit a three-run HR, he was named Robinson after the great Jackie Robinson, Mariano Rivera, the last major leaguer to wear the No. 42 got the save, and the final score was you guessed it 4-2 (over the Arizona Diamondbacks)!
