Today, in honor Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in the Major League, all players and coaches wore his number 42 instead of their own numbers. Robinson's number has been universally retired by all MLB teams. After the Yankees Mariano Rivera finally retires, the number 42 will only be worn on Jackie Robinson Day.

In 1947, Jackie Robinson put on number 42, and broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball.

this is for anybody that is turning 42 anytime soon or for anybody that loves the number 42. :)
