Jackie Robinson Day

Curtis Granderson (Toronto Blue Jays) honors Jackie Robinson this Sunday, April 15 with a custom pair of New Balance cleats, to commemorate the way Robinson’s perseverance through adversity paved a path for everyone who came after, and continues to inspire people today.

This year, Granderson will be donating his game-used and signed cleats to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

“I wear my socks high, not just today but every day of the season, to honor the legacy of my personal hero. Most importantly though, I get to hit the field with an amazingly talented and diverse group of individuals, to play a game I love in front of an equally diverse crowd of fans, and all because Jackie Robinson had the courage to go first."
