On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson took to the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers in an exhibition match between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees, becoming the first African American to play in Major league baseball. Four days later, he played on opening day when the Dodgers defeated the Boston Braves, 5-3. So… what on your scorecard for the day?
