(NOTE: Mariners-White Sox Game 1 thread is below this post)
Today is the 58th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's Major League debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was hitless in three at-bats on April 15, 1947, getting the start at first base. But Robinson would be victorious on his first day in the big leagues, as Brooklyn defeated the Boston Braves 5-3.
His impact on the game of baseball cannot be denied.
Thank you, Jackie.
