Since 2004, every player and coach in the major leagues wears No. 42 on April 15 in honor of Robinson breaking the color barrier. Robinson, a Pasadena native, made baseball history when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in April, 1947. Weighing in at over 700 pounds, the statue will be secured with a steel rod and is said to have three quotes chosen by Robinson's family.
The statue is located on the reserve level of the third-base side of the park, which is the most crowded entry of Dodgers Stadium according to ESPN.
It was reported on Friday that the Dodgers were revealing a statue of Robinson just outside the stadium in honor of Jackie Robinson Day.
The Dodgers had opened the 1947 season at home against the Boston Braves, and 26,623 fans attended the game at Ebbets Field.

Robinson's wife Rachel and children Sharon and David were in attendance along with a host of Dodgers legends. Their other son, Jackie Jr., died in a vehicle accident in 1971.
