Jackie Robinson day, a major league pain in the butt for announcers league wide!

The announcers worst enemy would have to be having everyone on every team wearing the same number wouldn’t it? To me it’s pretty stupid, so I just wanna say “nice job MLB”. It’s not like all the players could wear a patch with his number on it, no of course not, we need to make things just that more confusing. I love that fact that the idiots at the league office thought this was a good idea. I can just see it now, “Now batting, I think it’s maybe Robinson Cano!” My heart goes out to all those PA announcers and play by play callers who will screw up today, sorry I guess Bud doesn’t like you! I am pretty sure Jackie would have rather just been remembered some other way, without ruining the flow of the commentary and broadcasts of the game that he loved!
