Big night for the Texas Rangers: Jackie Robinson Day and the 50-year anniversary

The Texas Rangers will be not only be honoring Jackie Robinson for Jackie Robinson Day

75 years ago today on April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson would break Major League Baseball’s color barrier.

Facing seemingly insurmountable pressure and constant torment, Robinson displayed character, skill, and incredible courage..

In honor of this, every player, coach, and umpire will don the number 42 as the yearly tip of the cap to Robinson’s greatness commences.....

........except this year there is a few changes and more much deserved celebration in honor of the 75 year anniversary of his debut.
