CELEBRATE JACKIE ROBINSON’S LEGACY AT THE HALL OF FAME

When he stepped onto the Ebbets Field grass on April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson changed the landscape of the National Pastime – and the nation itself. It was a victory for civil rights, a momentous cultural shift and the beginning of a long journey… all embodied by the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman.

And the passage of time seems only to heighten the importance of the moment.

The baseball world pauses each April 15 to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day on the anniversary of his big league debut. But the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates Robinson every day through the Pride and Passion exhibit, educational programs and the preservation of stories from his singular career.
