In case anyone didn't understand why Jackie Robinson Day should be so meaningful to so many, Mookie Betts helped offer a powerful reminder.

The Dodgers' outfielder narrated words spoken by Robinson, with the video celebrating the day which annually commemorates the Hall of Famer.

Friday is Jackie Robinson Day throughout Major League Baseball, with every player wearing Robinson's retired No. 42. The day is normally reserved for April 15 -- the anniversary of Robinson making his major league debut -- but was pushed back due to the pandemic. It was first initiated by MLB in 2004.
