 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Every player on the Dodgers will be No. 42 for a day.
Los Angeles will honor the late Jackie Robinson by having all of its players wear his jersey number on April 15 when the Dodgers face the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium on the 60th anniversary of his becoming the first African-American player to play in a big league game.
``Jackie Robinson was a Dodger, and the most fitting tribute can pay to him is for the entire team to wear his number on the 60th anniversary of his breaking the color barrier,'' Dodgers vice chairman and president Jamie McCourt said.
Robinson made his debut for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. The team moved to Los Angeles after the 1957 season.
