One April 15, all players, coaches, and umpires of the MLB wear the jersey number 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, the first African American MLB player, who played his first MLB game on April 15, 1947.

Yes, MLB retired the number on April 15, 1997 in honor of the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's first game in MLB. However, anyone who was wearing #42 at that time could continue to wear it until they retired. There were a few players that continued to wear the number that included Mo Vaughn of the Red Sox and Mariano Rivera of the Yankees. In the 2009 season, only one player wears the #42 and that is Rivera. Once he retires no other MLB player will wear the #42.
