The legend retired from baseball in 1956, and passed away October 24, 1972 at the age of 53.

A number of teams around the MLB are celebrating Robinson’s historic career today, including the Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves, and Los Angeles Dodgers. Teams will have special ceremonies for Robinson and players around the league will wear the number 42 on the field today.

The MLB also announced the creation of IAM42.com, a site where over 60 players and professionals from across baseball have compiled videos expressing what Robinson’s legacy means to them. You can check out the site for yourself, here.
