Historical Jackie Robinson Milestones
Jackie Robinson may very well be the most important athlete of all-time. Robinson was the first African American to play in the modern era of Major League Baseball when he took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Today Robinson’s legacy is remembered for much more than just his success on the field but because of his cultural significance and importance to the United States and the Civil Rights Movement. His number 42 jersey has been retired by all of the teams in Major League Baseball and each season the MLB has a “Jackie Robinson Day” to commemorate the legacy of Robinson.
Robinson was a six time All-Star during his ten year career with the Dodgers. After debuting in 1947 Robinson went on to win the National League Rookie of the Year Award that season and lead the Dodgers to a World Series title in 1955. In 1949 he had a batting average of .349 winning the National Batting Title and the National League MVP Award in the process. Robinson is truly one of the game’s greatest players ever and is a member of the Major League Baseball All-Century Team and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.
