MLB Remembers Chadwick Boseman After Actor Died Of Colon Cancer At Age 43

Boseman died Friday of colon cancer

Chadwick Boseman, an American actor known for his role in “Black Panther,” died Friday after a battle with colon cancer.

Boseman left his mark on the Marvel community, and the same can be said about the baseball world as he also played the role of Jackie Robinson in the 2013 film, “42.”

The MLB, ironically, celebrated Jackie Robinson Day on Friday.

The league released a statement shortly after Boseman’s death was confirmed, saying it was “devastated by the tragic loss.”

Boseman was 43 years old.
