On April 15, 1947, the Brooklyn Dodgers started Jackie Robinson at first base. Everyone knows this was a big deal. It ended racial segregation in professional baseball. In 1997, MLB retired his number, 42, across all MLB teams. He was far more than a baseball player, he was a civil rights warrior. Robinson was also the first black television analyst in MLB and later, the first black vice president of a major American corporation, Chock full o'Nuts.
