About Jackie Robinson
In 1947 Jackie Robinson changed the world by becoming the first African American baseball player in the Major Leagues and he didn’t stop there! He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962 on the first ballot which is a big deal! If that isn’t impressive enough, Jackie was a member of six World Series teams. One of the reasons he was so well-known in the baseball world? Jackie was the leader in for stolen bases in 1947 and 1949. In 1949, Jackie was the National League Most Valuable Player.
Even though Jackie was a huge name in Major League Baseball, he devoted much of his time to be a part of the Civil Rights Movement. His dedication was to something much bigger than sports. He was an intelligent man who used his writing skills to publish a newspaper column for years. We haven’t quite figured out what he’s NOT capable of yet! This man was unstoppable on and off the diamond!
