Tucker wrote The complete post was sincere and heartfelt. Having been a Yankee's fan I didn't think any Dodger was the greatest but Robinson's contribution to all of sports was unmatched. Retiring number 42 was a huge mistake. The logic was to honor the man. Maybe it did. But it also hides his history and memory. Myself I'd like to see that number 42 on player's jerseys just so the announcers could tell the fans why that number means so much to baseball.
