  • Jackie Robinson - First Home Run

    Here's a bit of baseball history: This news photo captures Jackie Robinson touching home plate after hitting his first major league home run. The date was April 18, 1947. The site was the Polo Grounds; it was the New York Giants' 1947 home opener. Robinson's homer came in the top of the third inning off Giants' pitcher Dave Koslo. The blow gave the visiting Brooklyn Dodgers a short-lived 2-1 lead. The Giants went on to win the game 10-4. Shaking Robinson's hand is #17 Tommy Tatum (who played only four games for Brooklyn in 1947). The Giants' catcher is #5 Walker Cooper.
