All remembering what number 42 did and passing it down from generation to generation. Still, it's important to celebrate "Jackie Robinson Day" as both a tribute to a great American and a continuing reminder of a time when the game disgraced itself by keeping a large segment of our population from taking part in something that billed itself as the national pastime.
The Yankees' home opener went about as well as it could have for NY. "You're thinking is it's going to be another special day here at the Stadium", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He dominated like the pitcher the Yankees have always hoped he would become. Fantasy Impact After allowing four runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings against the Rays on Wednesday, Pineda was untouchable on Monday.
I know it, it's there of course. "It's important we had a good performance this afternoon but we need to fight until the end of the season for sure". Feghouli headed Lanzini's cross wide and then spurned another chance when firing off target, but it was Hull who cashed in on their momentum. That loss proved particularly costly for the hosts, with Pedro Obiang stretchered off with an ankle problem that has since seen him ruled out for the rest of the season and key centre-back Winston Reid ...
Ragnar Klavan is unavailable through a knee injury, with Lucas replacing the centre-back. That was a classic example of the confusion you often see, as neither Joel Matip nor Dejan Lovren seemed to know where they should be positionally and the Stoke forward was left in a ridiculous amount of space.
The 22-year-old, already a runner up in the scratch race and Madison in Hong Kong, went into the week targeting the points race and after winning two team pursuit gold medals in previous championships, she put on an exhibition to take individual gold.
Manchester United will take on Chelsea FC in an English Premier League match on Sunday, and its manager Jose Mourinho, is hoping that his club won't be ambushed by the latter. William Gallas, Joe Cole and Ricardo Carvalho scored for the home side while the sight of Wayne Rooney being carried off on a stretcher sent the game into panic stations with the World Cup in Germany fast approaching.
The Argentinean couldn't make contact but the Egyptian right-back couldn't help but do the work for him and Sane, who was lurking at the far post. It is not about the quality it's about the mentality to defend and we were not good. A move to the Nou Camp never materialised however because Silva was "so expensive". However, despite all of his positive contributions, Silva's only individual award remains a solitary Player of the Month nomination picked up in September 2011, which is something ...
Their reward for grinding out the very last playoff spot on the very last night of the regular season is facing the No. 1-seeded Boston squad that they dueled with to varying degrees of success throughout the regular season. The Celtics led 57-56 at halftime but couldn't stretch their lead beyond four in the third, taking an 80-78 advantage into the fourth. They will look to do the same thing in their best-of-seven series.
The Portuguese forward became the first man to reach the 100 goal milestone in the Champions League, after appearing in 143 games. The Italian gaffer told reporters after the game, "We had no luck tonight and it was the small details which made the difference".
The Red devils go into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Anderlecht in the Europa League.

An admitted drug dealer and ex-confidant of the defendant now serving a five-year sentence for a separate gun-related incident at a Hartford nightclub, Bradley was present the night of the shooting in question and fingered Hernandez as the triggerman.
It has been a remarkable transformation for Luiz, once described by Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville as resembling a player "being controlled by a 10-year-old on a Playstation", but Conte says he always recognised the Brazilian's ability to become a key figure in his plans.
But the venue , where the city meets the suburbs in Cobb County, isn't all that's new. The stadium and surrounding area has been in the works for more than two and a half years and officially opened to the public on Friday as Opening Day took place.
And Wilkins insists making the Champions League is a must if Manchester United want to sign their top transfer targets this summer. And at the weekend, L'Equipe reported that a "secret plan" would see Griezmann remain at Atletico for one more year before joining Real next summer.
For the rest of the match, both he and Gabriel Paulista surrendered willingly to Benteke and Wilfried Zaha as the rest of the team just looked disinterested. "Our fans are very unhappy and they come here hoping to see us win a game", Wenger - who said there is no news about his contract situation - told Sky Sports .

Vettel recovered from a poor start from row one and, after being stuck behind Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen early on, began to show the pace that swept the German to victory in Melbourne two weeks ago. Also earning points were Carlos Sainz of Toro Rosso in seventh, Kevin Magnussen of Haas in eighth, and the two Force India cars, Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon, in ninth and 10th.
Conte has seen the likes of Manchester United , Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs all compete in Europe this season, whereas the west Londoners have been able to exclusively focus on their assault for the Premier League crown. "Now we have another chance to beat them". It would seem that " Chelsea " can rest easy, securing a good lead over his pursuers, but otherwise thinks "Tottenham".
Pineda (0-1), who was 0-3 with a 7.30 ERA in five starts against Tampa Bay a year ago, struck out six while allowing four runs and eight hits over 3 2/3 innings. "Those are the big outs that you have to get", Girardi said of Pineda's struggles. Tampa led 3-0 after the first inning. "I really couldn't do anything today.
Klopp revealed that he was unsure whether eventual match-winners Coutinho and Firmino would be able to last the entire second half.

A 3-2 win over Southampton at Wembley secured the EFL Cup and United are in the midst of a Europa League quarter-final tie against Anderlecht . Alonso admits that would pile the pressure back on Chelsea , who face a tricky trip to Old Trafford to face a United team fuelled by a revenge mission on Sunday.
Boston acquired the six-foot-six left-hander from the White Sox for four prospects during the off-season. Just maybe not as often as the Red Sox originally planned. 3B Evan Longoria is 1-for-21 with eight strikeouts against Sale. "He'll be on the DL", Cash said. It wasn't quite the Leon magic we've gotten used to, but the catcher hit a weak grounder to second that was so weakly hit that the only play was at first base.
They pointed out the signs, and where he "belonged", and in stunned silence he walked in the "correct" direction; until he died, I don't think he ever got past the shock of that experience. Rickey saw the inner drive and quality of Robinson. "Truly blessed", Bundy said Saturday of wearing Robinson's number as has been the practice throughout Major League Baseball on April 15 since 2009.
He missed a large portion of spring training with the strained calf, then aggravated the injury Sunday running to first base and left the game in the sixth inning. The question, however, is when will the Jays be able to take advantage of some of the quality starts they are getting? He took a foul ball to the groin last season.
He's a top guy. "All the players should feel very important during the season". After half-time it was much the same story, with Watford only threatening in isolated moments, and Son further confirmed Spurs' dominance by meeting Kieran Trippier's ideal cross with a lovely half-volley at the far post.
For Utah, Rudy Gobert finished with a double double but the Jazz were simply outclassed. Since being waived by the Clippers, Ingles has obviously found a home in Utah and it has all worked out very well for him, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing what he can produce against the Clippers.
There is an off day tomorrow before the Yankees and Rays get back at it on Wednesday. TIGERS 2, RED SOX 1 Justin Verlander and Chris Sale dominated in a matchup of ace pitchers before Nicholas Castellanos singled in the go-ahead run off Sale in the eighth inning lift host Detroit to a victory.
Garino's agent photographed the signing and posted the picture on Twitter, not realizing the significance of the words on the whiteboard behind his client. The board indicates players they are interested in signing, or perhaps trading for in the upcoming offseason. Every team in the National Basketball Association likely compiles some sort of free agent and trade target list as the offseason approachres, but most other teams manage to keep their plans from showing up on social media.
We'll let you know if there's any additional information on Scott's condition. Donaldson left the game Thursday when he aggravated the injury on an RBI double in the sixth inning in the 2-1 loss to the Orioles. Davis' drive in the sixth was the 18th of his career at Rogers Centre. Baltimore acquired left-hander Paul Fry from Seattle in exchange for an worldwide signing slot and assigned him to Triple-A Norfolk.
But they got just enough on Saturday. Sale was also spectacular in his second outing of the season, a 2-1 loss to the Tigers. Just like his previous two starts, Sale received nearly no run support. He'd walk another in the fourth, but quickly erased that by stabbing a comeback liner and doubling off the runner at first base. The Cubs lost 8-7 to the Pittsburgh Pirates but reigning National League (NL) MVP Kris Bryant starred.
It might be worth wondering if the Mets pitchers-especially Matt Harvey-will retaliate tonight. The 2.1 innings Clay Buchholz gave the Phillies on Tuesday night weren't what you would call "solid". Cespedes' three-homer game marked the 13th in franchise history, and he recorded his other August 21, 2015 at Coors Field. The Mets, who won their third straight, finished the night with seven homers to fall one short of the franchise record.
Kim grounded out to first in the seventh and flied out to left in the eighth, before getting lifted for Gentry in the field in the bottom half of that inning. Both teams threatened in the first inning but couldn't push a run across. "There just weren't enough there at the end". Orioles closer Zach Britton worked the ninth for his fifth save.
According to a report by the NPD Group, which tracks the sale of video games in the USA, the Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in the month of March, making it one of the fastest-selling gaming systems of all times. No, the number doesn't include Wii U copies. Some of those sales were probably to collectors, sure, but chances are good that the 19,000 people who have Breath of the Wild for the Switch but do not have a Switch are planning to buy the console as soon as ...
Chelsea head to Manchester United on Sunday with Spurs having put together a run of seven straight Premier League wins. Now Tottenham occupies the role of the underdog, sitting four points behind Chelsea after swatting aside Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday.
Goals from Mousa Dembele, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane - who was making his first start since returning from ankle ligament trouble - and substitute Vincent Janssen saw off a timid Bournemouth side and stretched Spurs' winning run in the Premier League to seven games, which is their longest league run of victories for 50 years.
