Jack (Jackie) Roosevelt Robinson (January 31, 1919 - October 24, 1972) was the first black man allowed to play Major League Baseball. Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia . He starred in baseball, football, basketball, and track when he was a student at UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles). He served in the US Army during World War II (from 1942 to 1945), finishing his term as a lieutenant. Soon after, he played with the Montreal Royals (in the International League) beginning on April 18, 1946 - Robinson was the first black player in that league. On April 11, 1947, Robinson played his first Major League Baseball game (he played for the New York Dodgers in an exhibition game against the New York Yankees). Robinson played with the Dodgers for 10 years; he was voted Rookie of the Year in 1947, led the league with his batting average (.342) in 1949, and was also voted Most Valuable Player in 1949. He played in six World Series and was the first African-American in the Baseball Hall of Fame (in 1962).

That is not the end of this story; it is the start of it. Over the next ten years jackie robinson played baseball. He played it well. Very well.
Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson
Born:August 10, 1917, Cairo, Georgia
Died:October 24, 1972, Stamford, Connecticut Jackie Robinson (Jack Roosevelt Robinson) is today best known as the man who broke the "color barrier" in modern-era sports, but this Cairo, Georgia native was significantly more than the first black to play major league baseball since 1900. Jackie became a role model for all Americans: he played with courage, he lived with valor, he died with honor. Born in Cairo, Georgia and raised in Pasadena, California, he attended Pasadena Junior College then continued his education at the University of California at Los Angeles (1939-1941). Jackie Robinson was a sporting legend at the school, becoming the first athlete to letter in baseball, football, basketball and track (long jump). He left UCLA to play football with the Los Angeles Bulldogs while they were in the old Pacific Coast Football League. Pearl Harbor introduced America to World War II, and the U. S. Army drafted Robinson, sending him to Fort Riley, Kansas for training. He rose to the rank of Second Lieutenant. In 1944 America, both inside and outside of baseball, was still a segregated society. Blacks were required by law to move to the back of the bus before they could sit down. Robinson was brought up on charges of not following the rule but the charges were dismissed. He was discharged honorably at the end of the war. Joining the Kansas City Monarchs (Negro American League) in 1945 was the start of a fateful journey that would make Jackie Robinson a household name. James Wilkinson, the innovative owner who was the first to install lighting for professional baseball, hired Robinson to play shortstop. Enter Branch Rickey. Often painted as a showman looking to extract as much money from baseball fans as possible, Rickey's personal papers reveal the truth: a man who believed he had a moral obligation to change society.

Jackie Robinson: Before Organized Baseball Pasadena, California, 121 Pepper Street, was the urban environment. Mollie Robinson and her five children constituted the familial environment. These made up the environments that helped spawn Jack Roosevelt Robinson, the youngest of five children, four boys and a girl, whom Mollie Robinson saved from object poverty in Cairo, Georgia after her husband Jerry disappeared. Mollie's pride and determination caused her to seek a better life for her children. Jim Sasser, owner of the plantation on which the Robinsons lived and worked, had accused Mollie of causing Jerry to disappear. An uncle in Pasadena had invited Mollie and her five children to abandon Cairo and live with him. In 1920 Mollie decided to take Edgar, Frank, Mack, Jack and Willa Mae to Pasadena to live with their uncle Burton. The early years were a struggle for Mollie as the house owned by Uncle Burton was not large enough for the growing Robinson family. It remains a mystery how she was able to purchase a four-bedroom cottage at 121 Pepper Street without a husband and on a domestic's salary!

Questions to Talk About. Why is it important to celebrate jackie robinson s baseball career? What qualities make jackie robinson a good role model for others?
America Honors a Hero: Jackie Robinson When the 1997 baseball season opened on April 1, many special events were held to honor Jackie Robinson. Both major and minor league players and major league umpires wore "Breaking Barriers" arm patches in his honor. They wore the patches all season long. Many Little League, high school, and college teams wore the patches this season, too. This is just one way people are honoring the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's first year in major league baseball. Jackie Robinson was and still is a true American hero. Without Jackie Robinson's courage, African-American athletes might still not play with white athletes. Imagine there would be no Michael Jordan in basketball, no Tiger Woods in golf, no Deion Sanders in both baseball and football. Although Jackie Robinson died in 1972, when he was just 53 years old, the things he did in his life helped all Americans. Every athlete and every sports fan today benefits from Jackie Robinson's "breaking the barrier." Jack Roosevelt Robinson grew up in Pasadena, California, in the 1930s. At that time, the youth club in his neighborhood allowed him to play there only one day a week because of the color of his skin. Nevertheless, Jackie Robinson practiced his sports whenever and wherever he could. By the time he was in high school he was playing on the basketball, baseball, football, and track teams. He did the same when he attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Jackie's nine values In 1947, Jackie Robinson became the first African American man to play baseball in the Major Leagues. Along the way, he had to endure horrible racist insults. He also had to be an outstanding ballplayer to pave the way for other black athletes. He succeeded—and made history. How did he get past the obstacles? With the nine values that guided his life, on and off the field. Courage
One of the hardest things Jackie had to do was control his anger when he faced racism. The head of the Brooklyn Dodgers told Jackie, "I want a player with guts enough not to fight back!" By ignoring the insults, Jackie showed the public how wrong the racists were. His courage helped all black athletes eventually gain acceptance in professional sports. Determination
Jackie had to be determined just to get to spring training that first year. He and his wife, Rachel, were bumped off three different airplanes, and their seats were given to white people. When they finally decided to take a bus, they were forced to sit in the back. These were the kinds of indignities that all African Americans in the South suffered at that time.

Artist: Michael Guccione Commissioned by the Baseball Reliquary, this icon depicts Jackie Robinson, who in 1947 became the first black man to play major league baseball in the 20th century. Until his death in 1972, Robinson, along with Martin Luther King, Jr., was committed to the campaign for nonviolent resistance against racial oppression and injustice in the United States. In their book Diamonds in the Rough: The Untold History of Baseball , authors Joel Zoss and John Bowman remark that Robinson’s "debut was the most widely commented upon episode in American race relations of the century in some ways even more explosive than the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., or the struggle for desegregation for it marked a cooperative attempt to elevate the American creed of liberty, equality, and justice for all above the time-honored American tradition of social and economic discrimination. And it happened in baseball where, above all, Jackie Robinson’s turn at the plate personfied the hope that amidst the reality of inequality, the American Dream really could encompass everyone regardless of race." Artist Michael Guccione’s depiction of Jackie Robinson as a 20th century saint is surprising only because we do not typically think of him in this context. Yet Robinson certainly belongs in a modern gallery of saints in the sense that an understanding of his struggles may help us find meaning in our own lives. Robinson’s oft-repeated quote, "A life is not important, except in the impact it has on other lives," challenges us to change ourselves and our world. Only the image of those who have themselves bridged equally wide fissures in the past can give us the sight, the hope, the courage that it will take.

Thanks to Robinson, countless other players to follow him didn't have to find out. Throughout history, baseball has been in a number of positions to affect social change in dramatic ways. In 1947, baseball began something it would take years for the rest of the nation to catch up to integration. Jackie Robinson was born in 1919 in the rural South. Less than six months after Jackie's arrival, his father left the family never to return. Robinson's mother packed up her five children and moved to California in 1920. Robinson attended Pasadena Junior College where his athletic skills were showcased. He gained entrance into UCLA and became the first athlete to ever letter in four sports baseball, basketball, track and football. He also developed a reputation as unwilling to allow anyone to insult him or his race. He was drafted into the Army following the Pearl Harbor incident only to find himself facing another situation involving his skin color. Robinson faced court-martial over an incident involving himself and a white officer. In the end, all charges against Robinson were dismissed. On Nov. 28, 1944, he was released from the Army because of a football injury.

Also on hand was Robinson's widow, Rachel, and his grandson, Jesse Sims, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game between the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
'America is stronger'
"America is a stronger, richer country when we all work together and give everyone a chance," Clinton told the crowd after the fifth inning. "Robinson's legacy didn't end with baseball. He knew that education, not sports, was the key to success in life."

"We can achieve equality on the playing field, but we need to establish it in the boardrooms of America."

"Jules Tygiel's Extra Bases: Reflections on Jackie Robinson, Race, and Baseball History fills out and occasionally challenges the Robinson legend. . . . [Tygiel] is perhaps the leading expert on baseball and integration. . . . Felicitously . . . he stitches Robinson into the tapestry of his time . . . and presents arresting and satisfying anecdotes with his tempered analysis." —Alan Schwarz, The New York Times Book Review. "Among the highlights are a review of Robinson's tumultuous military career, an examination of the game during the Jim Crow era of racial discrimination, and a critique of Ken Burns' 18-hour documentary Baseball. . . .There is also a fascinating article examining the relatively recent phenomenon of televised sport and how it has altered our perceptions, to say nothing of the wealth it has created for participants." —Booklist.
