Teams across MLB are celebrating Jackie Robinson Day on Friday with every player wearing No. 42 to honor the baseball legend. It’s a great tradition for MLB, and a fantastic way to pay tribute to one of the most historic players to step foot on a baseball diamond.
New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is taking his tribute a step further and is thanking the late Robinson in his own way with a sweet pair of custom Jordan cleats. Sabathia isn’t the starter for Friday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, so his shoes won’t be seen by many, but he shared a photo on Twitter, and they’re incredible.
