Biography:

Jackie Robinson broke the Major League color barrier in 1947. Some people incorrectly say that he was the first black player in MLB history. While that is not technically correct that does not diminish the great achievement that he made to baseball and human rights. All Major League teams retired Jackie’s number 42 on the 50th anniversary of his accomplishment.
