Publisher Summary
Examines the life of the talented black athlete who broke the color barrier in major league baseball by joining the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

Today many children dream of playing professional  baseball. Perhaps you are one of them. If you have  good athletic skills and you work hard, your dream  may be realized. But this wasn't always true for  athletes in the first part of this century. More  was required. A player had to be white. Black  players--no matter how well they could hit, catch, or  throw--were not signed up by the major  leagues.

One brave black player named Jackie Robinson  worked to change the "rules," so that  all races could have the opportunity to fulfill  their dreams on the baseball diamond--or anywhere.  This is Jackie Robinson's story.
