MLB to Celebrate Jackie Robinson Day. Today marking the day in which the MLB decides to celebrate and recognize Jackie Robinson Day in 2020.
The star actor who played Robinson in the movie 42, Chadwick Boseman, has just tragically died of colon cancer today, at the young age of 43.

#RIP42

Just found out from a buddy and checked to confirm; Today was also Jack Kirby’s (co-creator of Black Panther) Birthday!? What kinda freaky supernatural shit we got going on here!?

On the day that MLB decided to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day. (Usually celebrated in April)

Oddly so many DOB searches say he is 42. Like a lot. A simple mistake, sure, but still weird.

From cancer, he kept completely secret for four years at the peak of his career.

Strange coincidence that on a day that otherwise would be a day to celebrate Jackie Robinson– that all this racial injustice would be occurring– and that Chadwick Boseman would also pass away– as he played Jackie Robinson in the wonderful film, ’42.’

RIP Chadwick Boseman on the day MLB happened to celebrate, due to COVID, Jackie Robinson Day. Whom he portrayed. This comes the same week MLB teams protested for Black Lives. Those lives are in every bit as much peril as they were in Jackie’s days.

Black Players who formed Players Alliance will donate Jackie Robinson MLB Salary to social justice.

Major League Baseball will celebrate Jackie Robinson Day Friday, four months later than usual because of the coronavirus pandemic. Jackie Robinson Day is customarily held on April 15, marking the anniversary of his breaking baseball’s color line in 1947. Because there were no games played on April 15, Jackie Robinson Day is being held on Aug. 28, the anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Robinson, his wife and children were among the more than 200,000 people in attendance for the demonstration, which is best remembered for Martin Luther King Jr.’s ”I Have A Dream” speech and led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. After attending the march, Robinson wrote, ”I’ve never been so proud to be a Negro. I’ve never been so proud to be an American.”Aug. 28 is also the anniversary of Robinson’s three-hour meeting with Brooklyn Dodgers President Branch Rickey at the team’s office in 1945 which led to his signing with the Montreal Royals, the Dodgers’ International League affiliate, later that year. For the 12th consecutive year on Jackie Robinson Day, all players and other on-field personnel will wear Robinson’s No. 42. The number 42 was retired throughout Major League Baseball in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of his debut with the Dodgers. The Jackie Robinson Day logo will be included on caps worn by on-field personnel, base jewels and official dugout lineup cards. A video presentation will be played on Angel Stadium’s scoreboards before the introduction of the starting lineups for the Los Angeles AngelsSeattle Mariners game. The jerseys worn by the Angels will be auctioned online with net proceeds going to the Angels Baseball Foundation to benefit community-related youth programs throughout the region. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who traditionally play a home game on Jackie Robinson Day, are scheduled to play the Texas Rangers in Arlington, Texas. Dodger and Ranger players and coaches have collaborated on a video honoring Robinson’s legacy that will be shown on Globe Life Field’s video boards before the game. The DoppelRangers cutouts will feature Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars and Rangers MLB Youth Academy youngsters. The foundation was founded by Robinson’s widow Rachel Robinson in 1973, the year following Jackie Robinson’s death at the age of 53. It provides four-year college scholarships to disadvantaged students of color. An online auction of the jerseys worn by the Dodgers will begin Sept. Proceeds will benefit the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people claiming to be illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced or abused in state jails and prisons, challenges the death penalty and excessive punishment and provides re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.
