Video: 50 Years of Jackie Robinson
Date: April 15, 1997
The Mets earned a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s MLB debut. The historic night featured special guests like Rachel Robinson, Jackie’s widow, and President Bill Clinton, but MLB commissioner Bud Selig stole the show when he announced the beginning of a new, permanent nod to Robinson’s legacy.
