#17 & #28: Jackie Robinson

IT’S DEJA VOUX ALL OVER AGAIN!

There is no doubt that Jackie Robinson’s baseball legacy is his breaking of the color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.  However, Robinson was also a helluva baseball player, and his ability on the field shows that he’s legit as one of the greatest PLAYERS of all time!

In his 10 year MLB career, Robinson was the recipient of the FIRST Rookie of the Year Award, was an All-Star for 6 seasons straight (1949-1954), won the NL MVP in 1949 (The first black player so honored), played in 6 World Series and won 1 in 1955.

In 1992, to honor Robinson, every team in baseball retired his #42.  He is one of three players to have his number retired by more than one team!
