Jackie Robinson Day is the Best of Days…

CORRECTION Jackie Robinson Day Baseball

Today is Jackie Robinson Day. I love this day. Everybody wears number 42… even Mariano Rivera. This is one of my Jackie Robinson baseball cards.

Love this man. Love what he did for baseball… for the country. A real hero. Because of what he did and how he did it, a lot of what you’ll hear about Jackie today won’t have anything to do with what he did on the field… easy to forget he was a badass ball player. Check out this infographic of his career. Long and heavy, but pretty cool.

Cheers to you, Jackie.
