His unquestioned talent wasn't the only reason Jackie Robinson's jersey number 42 was retired across all MLB teams (A first in any professional sport). The legend of Jackie Robinson was rooted in his character. He broke the MLB color barrier with a seemingly unshakable resolve and the decision to defy violent protests against him, dangerous segregation and racial vitriol (from fans, opponents and even his own clubhouse), with non-violence, his talent, and sheer force of will.
During his illustrious career he won the inaugural Rookie of the Year award, a National League MVP, a National League Batting Championship, was a 2-time National League stolen base leader, a 6-time All-Star, and won a World Series.
This Jackie Robinson print on canvas honors the man who made the game and country better for his contributions.
"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."
