Jackie Robinson # 42 Brooklyn Dodgers

Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball MLB in the modern era. Robinson broke the baseball color line when the 
Brooklyn Dodgers started him at first base. 

One of my favorite quotes of Jackie Robinson: "Life is not a spectator sport. If you're going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes 
on, in my opinion you're wasting your life."   - Jackie Robinson
