Every American knows that today is the deadline for filing their tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service. April 15 is also the anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. He played for the Brooklyn Dodgers on this date in 1947 at Ebbets Field.
To commemorate this historical event all players in Major League Baseball wear the number 42 on their jerseys each year on this date.
After some early morning wind and nearly an inch of rain the temperature should rise to the mid 60’s. Tonight will be chilly with a low of….you guessed it….42 degrees!
