Jackie Robinson Day 2023 And 42 MLB Prop Bets, Futures And Stats
April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day (photo: WBSC), and all MLB players will wear jersey No. 42 in his honor. There are 15 MLB games on Saturday, April 15, and I chip-in 42 MLB props, futures and stats you can evaluate and bet in my coverage in Forbes.
I look at the history of Jackie Robinson and his impact on baseball and society as the first African American player to play in the Big Leagues in 1947.
I also add some insight on my Day at Dodger Stadium last summer watching and wagering on the Twins-Dodgers game and taking a tour of the stadium, field and memorabilia with the story of Dodger baseball and history covered in every angle. That includes about the voice of Dodger baseball Vin Scully, who passed away a week before I went to Dodger Stadium. And of course, the history and impact of Jackie Robinson and his 10 years playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” – Jackie Robinson

The whole experience was like a Field of Dreams. Like for Dodgers great Sandy Koufax, who in 2021 expressed his gratitude of Jackie Robinson.
“It was 67 years ago Jackie Robinson became my teammate and friend,” he said. “At that time, sharing a space with him would have been absolutely unimaginable. Today, it still is. It’s one of the greatest honors of my life.”
Check out the prop bets, futures and other stats and stories in my Jackie Robinson Day coverage in Forbes. I’ll post more of those ’42’ next week after it’s filtered through Forbes following the April 15 game vs. the Chicago Cubs.
You can bet on it.
