Jackie Robinson Day at Brooklyn Mills

Jackie Robinson Day at Brooklyn Mills

Never forgotten in baseball-crazy Japan, the man who broke the sport's 'colour barrier' with his start for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947, is honoured by Major League Baseball annually on that date – providing an excuse for Ikebukuro's Brooklyn Mills café to offer hot dogs for ¥42 throughout the day. A reference to Robinson's uniform number, the price applies to the first 300 dogs sold on the day. And if you have a few extra coins to spare, consider donating to the Jackie Robinson Foundation, which offers minority youths scholarships for higher education.
