Jackie Robinson Day – A salute to 42

Jackie Robinson Day 3.JPGMajor League Baseball paid homage to Jackie Robinson on Wednesday as all uniformed personnel wore number 42. The day took on extra meaning in Kansas City, where Robinson played for the Negro League’s Monarchs in 1945.  Former 20-game winner Mudcat Grant was on hand in the Buck O’Neill Legacy Seat. Here’s a look at the special day, which included this monster home run by Mike Jacobs.
