The Phillies are wearing a black patch with a white '36' on their sleeves to honor former Phillies pitcher Robin Roberts, who died on May 6th. '32' was Steve Carlton's jersey number.

The Phillies first African American player was infielder John Kennedy whose first game with the team was April 22, 1957. I have no idea when he was signed. Kennedy's MLB career lasted 5 games. He had previous played in the Negro Leagues with the Birmingham Black Barons and Kansas City Monarchs.
John Kennedy ... he was a pinch runner on April 22, 1957 against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

The Philadelphia Phillies -- and their manager Ben Chapman -- were notorious for relentless heckling of Robinson in his early days in major league baseball. Reportedly, at one game at Shibe Park in Philadelphia, a black cat was let loose onto the field. The heckling only made Robinson more determined to succeed, and he continued to excel in the majors.
