He, like many African-American players, spent his winters playing ball in Latin America. Campanella was granted a deferment during World War II since he had two children. He went to play in the Mexican League in 1942 but returned to the Giants in 1944. bodyOffer(2126) Branch Rickey and the Brooklyn Dodgers were looking for African-American players to integrate major league baseball. They first signed Jackie Robinson and then soon afterward in 1946 they signed Campanella. He played in the minor league for two years and then made a brief appearance with the Dodgers early in 1948. Next, he was sent back to the minor league in an attempt to integrate the American Association. He was promptly called back to the Dodgers after hitting 13 home runs in 35 games there. The 26-year old Campanella had a batting average of .258 in 83 games in 1948. In 1949, his batting average was .287.

Extractions: d. June 26, 1993 Career Batting Record Major league baseball's first black catcher, Campanella began playing professionally when blacks could hardly dream of ever being in the majors. In 1937, he was with the Bacharach Giants, a semi-pro team, but before the season ended he was the starting catcher for the Baltimore Elite Giants of the Negro National League. Like many blacks, he played winter baseball in Latin America while he was with the Giants. Because he had two children, Campanella was granted a draft deferment during World War II. He went to the Mexican League in 1942 but returned to the Giants in 1944. When Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers was looking for a black player to integrate major league baseball, Campanella was among those considered. Jackie Robinson, of course, was chosen for that role, but Campanella also signed with the Dodgers soon afterward, in 1946. After two seasons in the minor leagues, Campanella was with the Dodgers briefly at the beginning of the 1948 season. He was sent down to the minors, primarily to integrate the American Association, but was called back up for good after hitting 13 home runs in 35 games. "Campy" played for four pennant winners in Brooklyn and was named the NL's most valuable player in 1951, 1953, and 1955. He hit .325 with 33 homers and 108 RBI in 1951. In 1953, he set a record for catchers with 41 home runs, led the league with 142 RBI, and batted .312. When the Dodgers won their first world championship in 1955, Campanella batted .318 with 32 home runs and 107 RBI.
