Publisher's Summary

As a kid, Jackie Robinson loved sports. And why not? He was a natural at football, basketball, and, of course, baseball. But beyond athletic skill, it was his strength of character that secured his place in sports history. In 1947 Jackie joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the longtime color barrier in Major League Baseball. It was tough being first - not only did "fans" send hate mail, but some of his own teammates refused to accept him.
