The Detroit Tigers celebrate Jackie Robinson Day.

Jackie Robinson Day April 15, 2021

Starting Lineup

The Detroit Tigers celebrate Jackie Robinson Day by partnering with RISE. RISE is a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations. We asked high school students in the RISE program what inspires them most about Jackie's life as they strive to be a leader for racial equity and social justice.

This is such an important moment in our history - and we have to make sure we don't miss this opportunity to affect real change. Let's celebrate our shared humanity, and enjoy the experience of working together with someone new - someone who maybe doesn't look like us - to make real changes. And recognize that those changes benefit all of us. - Dan Dickerson, Lead Play-by-Play Voice of the Detroit Tigers
