Jackie Robinson JackieRobinson My Hero

Once upon a time in America when automobiles were black and looked like tanks, and laundry was white and hung on clotheslines to dry, there was a baseball league that no longer exists. This was called the Negro League. Many Americans knew that racial prejudice was wrong. Branch Rickey, the general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team was not afraid of change. He thought segregation was unfair and searched for one special man, a star player in the Negro Leagues, who would have the skill and the characteristics to compete successfully in the Major Leagues.
