On April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson did the impossible by breaking the color barrier in the major leagues. He paved the way for many of the all-time greats and was also one himself, the stats speak for them self – 10 seasons for the Brooklyn Dodgers, NL Rookie of the Year in 1947, MVP in 1949, lef the Dodgers to six league pennants, a World Series title in 1955 and first ballot Hall of Famer in 1962. Along with his ability on the field Jackie was a leader in the civil rights movement alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On this Jackie Robinson Day we honor the legend by taking a look at his most iconic images along with a handful of rare images that you may have not seen.
