Honoring the day Jackie Robinson made his major-league debut on April 15, 1947, becoming the first African-American to play in the majors in the modern era, Friday was Jackie Robinson Day for all major-league teams. A film about Robinson's accomplishments played on the big screen at Tropicana Field before the game, and players and Rays staff wore No. 42 during the game. "From the first time I wore it to now, it's different. It definitely means more," OF Desmond Jennings said of wearing Robinson's number. "Then I was wearing it because it was my jersey. Now I'm wearing it for pride."
