House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: March 6, 2020 11:34 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Designating April 15, 2020 as "Jackie Robinson Day" in PA
I will soon introduce a resolution honoring the lifetime achievements and lasting influence of Jackie Robinson.

On April 15, 1947, Robinson became the first African American to play for a major league baseball team, being named Rookie of the Year. Over the course of his career, he also earned recognition as the first African American to win a batting title, lead the league in stolen bases, play in an All-Star game, play in the World Series, win an MVP award, and be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. To honor his achievements, Major League Baseball retired his number, #42.

This resolution will designate April 15, 2020 as “Jackie Robinson Day” to honor him and his many achievements.
