Baltimore Orioles Honor Legacy of Jackie Robinson

Updated: Wednesday, April 16 2014, 05:38 PM EDT

After Tuesday's game against the Rays was rained out, the Baltimore Orioles held a belated "Jackie Robinson Day" on Wednesday, honoring his legacy. Each player wore a No. 42 jersey.

April 15 is the day Major League Baseball honors the former Brooklyn Dodger's infielder for breaking the MLB color barrier in 1947.

The Orioles Charitable Foundation presented a check for $60,000 to the Jackie Robinson foundation on Wednesday, which will go towards supporting a Jackie Robinson Scholar for the next four years.

The Orioles are also making each player's authenticated game-worn and autographed #42 jersey available for bids on orioles.com/auction to benefit the Baltimore Orioles charitable Foundation and the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
