In 1971, Jackie Robinson was the first black Baseball player ever to be elected into the National Hall of Fame. He was also the first black baseball player to be recruited to play for Major League Baseball. Prior to joining Major League Baseball, he played and excelled in the Negro Leagues, when separate leagues were common. He wore the number 42, and every year on Jackie Robinson Day, every player in the MLB wears a jersey with 42 in his honor and memory.
