Curtis Granderson: ‘It felt really special’ to honor Jackie Robinson in Dodger Blue

Curtis Granderson made it known that he has always wore his game socks high in honor of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play Major League Baseball in the modern era, but felt that “it was really special” to do it in Dodger blue.

Granderson, a 14-year veteran, was in his fourth season with the New York Mets before he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday.

He made his debut for the Dodgers on the road against the Tigers, an organization Granderson spend the first eight years of his professional career with.

Against the Tigers, he was 0-for-4 but scored a run in the Dodgers’ shutout victory.
