Jackie Robinson Day
Here's what MLB is doing for Jackie Robinson Day in 2021
Every year, even in a pandemic, Jackie Robinson Day creates one of the great sights in baseball: an entire league wearing No. 42.
Everyone — including players, coaches, umpires and sometimes even fans — wearing the jersey number of the man who broke baseball's color barrier 74 years ago today. It's hard to think of a bigger tribute bestowed on a player by a league, and yet MLB's efforts to honor Robinson go beyond it in 2021.
