Taking a Style Cue from Number 42

On April 15, 1947, exactly 66 years ago, Jackie became the first African-American player in Major League Baseball history. As a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers, he faced continual racial discrimination from fellow players and fans, despite being named the 1947 “Rookie of the Year” and the 1949 “Most Valuable Player” by the National League. Still, Jackie persevered, and 50 years later, his jersey number (42) was retired from Major League Baseball.
