Homerun on Jackie Robinson day

Not sure how the long ball affected today’s outcome (maybe a little sprinkle of Jackie Robinson’s magic šŸ™‚ ) but let’s list the players who did.

Player Team
Carlos Quentin White Sox
Conor Jackson Diamondbacks
Jason Varitek Red Sox
Chris Snelling Phillies
Pat Burell Phillies
Jason Morneau Twins
Magglio Ordonez Tigers
Carlos Guillen Tigers
Miquel Cabrera Tigers
Aaron Hill Blue Jays
Nick Markakis Orioles
Adam Jones Orioles
Melvin Mora Orioles
Hideki Matsui Yankees
Joey Votto Reds
Mark DeRosa Cubs
Ryan Theriot Cubs

Okay now let’s list the players who wore number 42 jersey..

Player Team
Gary Sheffield Tigers
Chris Young Diamondbacks
Derrek Lee Cubs
Ken Griffey Jr. Reds
Casey Kotchman Angels
David Wright Mets
Jeff Kent Dodgers
Russell Martin Dodgers

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.
