Two years later, he hit a league-leading .342, drove in 124 runs, and was voted the Most Valuable Player in the National League. Reared in Pasadena, Calif., Robinson became an outstanding all-around athlete at Pasadena Junior College and the University of California at Los Angeles. He excelled in football, basketball, and track as well as baseball. Robinson withdrew from U.C.L.A. in his third year to help his mother care for the family. In 1942 he entered the U.S. Army, attended officer candidate school, was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1943, and received a medical discharge in 1945.

    Background Information




    Background Information Jackie Robinson was born to a sharecropper's cabin on January 31, 1919. He was the fifth and last surviving child. The Robinson's worked for the Sasser family in exchange for their cabin and a few provisions. The family earned the equivalent of three dollars a week, which could only be spent at the Sasser plantation store. Jerry Robinson, Jackie's father, left the family in 1919. Later the Robinson family moved to California where Jackie's uncle lived. Life was better there, but the family was still very poor. Jackie's mother worked long hours as a domestic, leaving the children home on their own. Gaining an education was very important to Jackie's mother. Because Jackie grew up in a time where opportunities were extremely limited for African Americans, he had to fight for everything. Jackie's mother taught him that the future would not just "work out" but that he would have to stand up for himself at all times. He did. He had a temper and a fiery personality, which often got him into trouble. Jackie loved playing practical jokes that could sometimes be cruel. He was also the leader of the Pepper Street gang, he felt comfortable in the gang because the members were a mixture of African American, Japanese Americans, Hispanic, and some whites. The gang got into some minor trouble with the law due to stealing, and other unlawful activities. Jackie decided to leave the gang because it wasn't helping his life in any way. Sports probably also played a part in that decision.

    Jackie Robinson voted 15th-best athlete of century

    Jackie changed face of sports
    By Larry Schwartz

    Special to
    It's not often that the essence of a man, especially a complicated man, can be summed up in one sentence. But then again, there haven't been many people like Jackie Robinson. "A life is not important," he said, "except in the impact it has on other lives." Jackie Robinson led the way for generations of black athletes. By that standard, few people and no athlete this century has impacted more lives. Robinson lit the torch and passed it on to several generations of African-American athletes. While the Brooklyn Dodgers infielder didn't make a nation color blind, he at least made it more color friendly. And he accomplished this feat by going against his natural instincts. He was an aggressive man, outraged at injustice, and quick to stand up for his rights. He had the guts to say no when ordered to the back of the bus in the army, and was court-martialed for his courage. His instinct wasn't to turn the other cheek, but to face problems head on. He was more prone to fighting back than holding back. That's what Robinson had to do when Dodgers president Branch Rickey selected him to become the first African-American to play in the majors this century. Rickey wanted a man who could restrain himself from responding to the ugliness of the racial hatred that was certain to come.

    There are a two men in baseball history that every American should learn about: Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson. Ruth deserves to be remembered for primarily what he did between the lines, Robinson for simply crossing the line. After Branch Rickey bravely signed him to a contract, Robinson broke the "unwritten" color barrier when he played for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. He endured taunts, insults, threatened boycotts, death threats, isolation, and immense pressure to become the best all-around player in the National League. He won Rookie of the Year honors, the Most Valuable Player Award, and led Brooklyn to six pennants in ten years.

    Grade: Subject: Mathematics Background:
    Of all the lessons baseball can teach us, none is more important that the one taught by Jackie Robinson, the ballplayer who broke the unwritten rule that kept black athletes out of the major leagues for sixty years. Baseball was a segregated sport until the mid-1940s, when Jackie Robinson broke the game's color barrier, prompted by a daring baseball executive, Branch Rickey. Robinson endured many challenges to prove his prowess as an athlete, be accepted as an important contributor to the sport, and most important, to defend and uphold the dignity of his race. In this activity students assess Jackie Robinson's impact in three areas of American society by studying his life and contributions to baseball. Activity Options: I) If possible, have students view Inning 6, The National Pastime , which presents Jackie Robinson's life. Ask students to discuss the following about the baseball player:

    Jackie Robinson
    Also known as: Jack Roosevelt Robinson, John Roosevelt Robinson
    Baseball player, activist Honored internationally as the central figure in baseball's "Noble Experiment," Jack Roosevelt Robinson, known in the world of baseball as Jackie Robinson, took the first steps toward integrating the sport's major league teams when he signed a contract to play with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. This gigantic stride, which prepared the way for the legendary feats of Willie Mays and Henry Aaron, was an early harbinger of the significant changes in contract negotiations, compensation, and general status of professional athletes addressed half a century later in the 1994-95 baseball strike. His individual challenge to the accepted policies of organized sports demonstrated that change was possible through the concentrated effort of a player's union. BIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY Despite the absence of some of the more arduous racial conditions of Georgia, Pasadena had similar restrictionsthe movies were segregated, African Americans could swim in the municipal pool and attend the YMCA only on designated days, and some eating places were closed to black people. From the teachings of his mother, however, Robinson learned important lessons of selfrespect and selfconfidence.
