Though he never played for the Cardinals, Jackie Robinson’s number 42 was officially retired across baseball in 1997. Jackie played for the Dodgers from 1947 through 1956. Jackie is best remembered for wearing Dodger blue with distinction while defying the game’s history of prejudice. Beginning in 2018, the Cardinals have participated in Jackie Robinson day in baseball, when all players for every team wear 42 on their jerseys.
