Jackie Robinson Day 2018

If we were to look at his figures even casually, we could see that Jackie Robinson would serve as support for those whose allegiance lies with statistics as the best indicator of greatness, as he helped the Brooklyn Dodgers dominate the National League in his 10-year career, tallying a.311 batting average, scoring 947 runs, knocking in 734 scores and swiping 197 bases. At some point during the day, people in the league office seemed to realize that pairing Robinson - who was denied entrance to the majors (among countless other places) due to racism - with a logo that is being retired due to its insensitive portrayal of Native Americans was a bad idea. It was a barrier that had never been broken, and one that wasn't welcomed warmly.

Caps featuring the Robinson patch were available for all 30 teams and Cleveland's version featured the Wahoo logo rather than the block C. There is no block C version of the hat available from the Major League Baseball shop.

No. 42 is the only number that is retired across Major League Baseball, and Jackie Robinson Day is the one day of the year where fans will see it in remembrance of one of the sport's greatest trailblazers. Promo Marketing found women's and men's tops designated to honor Robinson's legacy, but neither appeared to have the logo.

The Wahoo logo is being phased out, as many know, with Cleveland announcing it would be removed entirely in time for the 2019 season - convenient timing, considering the organization will host next summer's All-Star Game. According to Forbes, The League commissioner Rob Manfred addressed the issue stating, "it was mistake and had somehow slipped through the cracks". For the opposition and admirers of Robinson, this incident will further their belief that Chief Wahoo can not disappear fast enough, and shows that no matter how much respect the ballplayer has earned, nobody seems immune to facing commercialism's less-than-stellar elements.
