Cool Robinson tribute by Griffey
Ken Griffey Jr. will wear No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson Sunday, April 15.
It was Griffey's idea. He called commissioner Bud Selig and got permission. All teams retired 42 in 1997, the 50th anniversary of Robinson's debut.
"I thought it would a good idea to where it on the 60th," Griffey said. "I called Bud. We talked a few minutes. He said he's get back to me. He wanted to make sure it was OK with everyone."
Every team will have someone wear 42 April 15.
