42, which hits theaters this Friday, April 12, tells the story of American hero Jackie Robinson who broke the MLB’s color barrier in 1947. The first African-American to play in the major leagues, he endured an unbelievable level of racism with class and dignity.
Every April, players from all MLB teams don the number 42 jersey to commemorate and celebrate “Jackie Robinson Day.”
His number is the only one to be retired by all Major League Baseball teams.
