the baseball player Jackie Robinson wore it. Mariano Rivera who played for the New York Yankees.Ronnie Lott who played for the SanFrancisco 49ers. And it was the number on Lee Petty's Race car. And in modern day, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timber Wolves wears it.
i am not positivily sure but i know no one in baseball wears #42 and that the number is in every ballpark as a giant decal or sign. #42 was the number Jackie Robinson wore for the Brooklyn dodgers and that he was the first negro to play baseball professionly in America. now there were negro leagues but they were not considered major league. so i know for a fact that no one in mlbwears it and possibly football and basket ball also
