January 31, 1919: Jackie Robinson is Born.

Jackie Robinson became the first African-American Major League Baseball player of the modern era. Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color line when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

He led America by example. He reminded our people of what was right and he reminded them of what was wrong. I think it can be safely said today that Jackie Robinson made the United States a better nation.

- American League President Gene Budig
