“...I cannot stand and sing the anthem. I cannot salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world. In 1972, in 1947, at my birth in 1919, I know that I never had it made.”
— Jackie Robinson, 1972

When Jackie Robinson stepped onto Ebbets Field 72 years ago today he changed the world by shattering the color barrier in @MLB. He also made his mark at UCLA as a four-sport star for the Bruins in football, basketball, track and baseball. Today we celebrate his legacy. #Jackie42 https://t.co/kcmdPXnAgP

On August 20, 1947 at Ebbets Field, Enos Slaughter spiked Jackie Robinson at 1st base.
2 years later, Robinson knocked out 3 of Slaughter's teeth on a slide into 2nd base.
Slaughter looked up at Robinson, who just said, "I never forget." #Jackie42
