An artist designed baseball bats that feature Jackie Robinson's face on the top

Still, considering his place in the history of the game, he can't be honored enough. And artist Rob Ferrel has found one of the most inventive ways yet: He put Robinson's face on a bat.

We wouldn't recommend actually stepping up to the plate with it, though.
