Jackie Robinson Day
by Craig Tomarkin
Jackie Robinson Day is Sunday, April 15, 2007. It marks the 60th anniversary of his first game in the major leagues. He will be honored in all 15 ballparks where games are being played that day. The entire Dodgers team will be wearing Jackie's number 42 during their game.
The number was "retired" in 1997 by Bud Selig, but it will be unretired on Sunday for one day.
