Major League Baseball teams celebrated Jackie Robinson breaking the colour barrier last (Monday) night.

Robinson debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15,1947.

Since the 2009 season, every player, manager, and coach across the league wears Robinson’s jersey number 42 without their name on the back of the jersey.

Bryce Harper decided to pay tribute to Robinson’s days as a UCLA Bruin for last (Monday) nights game against the Mets, wearing some blue and gold cleats.

Robinson’s number 42 was retired league-wide on April 15th, 1997.

To this date, Jackie Robinson is the only player to receive this honor in Major League Baseball.
