“Great statesmen do not grow on trees, and sometimes it falls to ordinary citizens to save us from our lesser selves and bring out, if not the best, at least the better in us.”
Each year on April 15, all players in Major League Baseball turn in their regular uniforms and wear one adorned with the number 42. On no other day does any player wear that number; it has been permanently retired. This custom, unique in North American professional sports, has been adopted to honor a man who not only changed a sport, but helped change a country.
