Chadwick Boseman, one of the most acclaimed actors of his generation, died of colon cancer Friday. He was 43.
Boseman, in fact, passed away on Jackie Robinson Day.
Robinson played for the Dodgers from 1947 to 1956. The six-time All-Star was Rookie of the Year in 1947, NL MVP in 1949, and won a World Series in 1955. He was a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 1962.
