Not sure how the long ball affected today’s outcome (maybe a little sprinkle of Jackie Robinson’s magic 🙂 ) but let’s list the players who did.
|Carlos Quentin||White Sox|
|Jason Varitek||Red Sox|
|Aaron Hill||Blue Jays|
Okay now let’s list the players who wore number 42 jersey..
|Ken Griffey Jr.||Reds|
Conclusion: None that I know off but it is interesting to see number 42 unretired for the second time. Thank you MLB.com for acknowledging Jackie Robinson accomplishment to the game of baseball. Hope they do this again next year.
