Baseball Player Jackie Robinson Birthday

What happened on January 31?

A royal “Hiep hiep… Hoera!” today, as we celebrate the birthday of Princess Beatrix van Oranje-Nassau (*1938) – former Queen of The Kingdom of The Netherlands.

Exactly 80 years later, in 2018, the world experienced the birth of a magical happening: it was the day a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse occurred at the same time. A fascinating display of nature!

Jackie Robinson, the US baseball legend, was born today in 1919. He was the first Afro-American baseball player ever to play in the MLB.

And we seal the day with two great players of the silver screen:
Jean Simmons (*1929) and Jonathan Banks (1947).
