Baseball's great pioneer was remembered in a new way as MLB celebrated this year’s annual Jackie Robinson Day on Sunday, April 15.

Robinson’s legacy and accomplishments in the sport are well documented, and it’s been customary since 2009 for all on-field personnel to rock Robinson’s number 42 jersey in solidarity during this occasion.

This year, MLB added a commemorative ’42' patch to the on-field New Era 59FIFTY caps in addition to player uniforms, marking the first time ever that the league has done so. New Era’s proud to play a role in the continued celebration of such a storied figure in baseball and African-American history.

Their relationship with MLB has been redefined in “We Who Reign,” the brand’s cultural homage to a new class of creators spanning music and art, tapping artists like Big Sean, Rich the Kid, and A$AP Ferg to model their own special edition No. 42 59FIFTY.

Peep the full collection of teams and caps available with the commemorative ’42’ patch now at New Era’s website.
