MLB players all wear No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day
NEW YORK (AP)
Jackie Robinson's family has taken part in a pregame tribute at Yankee Stadium on the 64th anniversary of the day he broke baseball's color barrier.
Friday was Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball. All players, managers, coaches and umpires wore his No. 42 in memory of the Brooklyn star, who made his debut in 1947.
Rivera is the last big leaguer still regularly wearing No. 42. The number has since been permanently retired.
Texas manager Ron Washington and Yankees manager Joe Girardi visited Little Leaguers in Newark, N.J., as part of the Jackie Robinson celebration.
