This ceremonial pitching rubber was used in the first ever Jackie Robinson Day on April 15, 2004 at Shea Stadium in Queens, N.Y. That day was the start of an annual tradition throughout Major League Baseball and an inspirational reminder about what happened on that day exactly fifty-seven years earlier when Jackie Robinson became a Major League Baseball player. This particular rubber was used by Jackie's wife, Rachel, to throw out the first pitch of the game. It shows mild use and has an MLB hologram affixed, as well as a Mets logo and the official Jackie Robinson Day logo with the game's date.
