According to the New York Times, the New York Yankees will pay tribute to Nelson Mandela in Monument Park. The organization plans to unveil a plaque on Jackie Robinson Day this upcoming April before a game against the Chicago Cubs.

Mandela's connection with the team is portrayed in the photo above, taken during a 1990 appearance at Yankee Stadium in which the late South African leader said, “You know who I am. I am a Yankee.”
