MLB The Show celebrates Jackie Robinson Day

April 15th, 2024

April 15th, 2024 marks the 77th anniversary of the day that the MLB’s color barrier was broken by Jackie Robinson as the first African-American to play in the Major Leagues. Not only did this act change the trajectory of baseball as it was known, but it was also an immensely historic step forward in the strengthening of the American experiment. Today, MLB® The Show™ 24 honors Jackie Robinson and his contributions that continue to impact the fabric of our society.
