(CNSNews.com) – Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) put out a Tweet this week honoring the 100th birthday of the late Jackie Robinson, the hall of famer who became the first African American to play Major League Baseball.

“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives,” Schumer said in his Tweet.

“Jackie Robinson’s life impacted millions,” Schumer said.

“The example he set on and off the field in Brooklyn and across the country has always been a source of pride and inspiration to me,” said Schumer.

“Happy 100th, #JackieRobinson,” Schumer said.

Jackie Robinson was born on Jan. 31, 1919 and died on Oct. 24, 1972. On April 15, 1947, when the Brooklyn Dodgers played him at first base he became the first African American to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball. Robinson played football, basketball and baseball at UCLA and also was on the track team.
