Pitcher Matt Harrison, 2nd baseman Ian Kinsler, and shortstop Elvis Andrus listen to the “Star-Spangled Banner” before the opening of Jackie Robinson Day in Arlington in 2012. Jackie Robinson Day is April 15, which was opening day in 1947, the year that Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. As another tribute, Robinson’s number 42 was retired across the MLB, except on Jackie Robinson Day, when all players and other uniformed personnel wear his number.
