Jackie Robinson Day lineups

Today is Jackie Robinson Day all over MLB, with all field personnel commemorating the 62nd anniversary of the breaking of baseball’s color barrier. Every jersey number you see in a baseball game today will feature Robinson’s No. 42.

Here’s today’s lineup:

42 Soriano, LF
42 Theriot, SS
42 Fukudome, RF
42 Lee, 1B
42 Fontenot, 3B
42 Johnson, CF
42 Soto, C
42 Miles, 2B
42 Harden, RHP

They’re taking on former Cub Jason Marquis (1-0, 2.57 ERA).

“That’s the number they gave me in Rookie ball, so I just kind of stuck with it. You know, you can’t wear 42 anymore, so I always said, 21 is half of 42; if I can be half of the player, half of the person, Jackie Robinson was, then I will have been a success. That’s my motto.” (from January)

Very special guest singing the stretch

Actor Michael J. Fox will be singing the seventh-inning stretch today. Fox is promoting his new book “Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist,” in which he discusses his positive outlook while struggling with Parkinson’s disease.
