1971 jackie robinson book by kenneth rudeen brooklyn dodgers Product Details school libary edition hardback book Overview When Jackie Robinson first stepped up to bat for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, he faced a long, hard battle. People called him horrible names. Pitchers aimed the ball right for his head. And players used the spikes on their baseball shoes to cut his legs. Jackie Robinson didn't back down. As the first black player in the white major leagues, he had made up his mind to play ball-and to open baseball's doors to all black men. This is the dramatic story of his triumph. An easy-to-read biography of the first black man to play in major league baseball. Jack Roosevelt Robinson Born January 31, 1919, Cairo, Georgia Died October 24, 1972, Stamford, Connecticut Bats Right Throws Right Played For Kansas City Monarchs 1945, Brooklyn Dodgers 1947-1956 Elected to the Hall of Fame by Baseball Writers: 1962 Jackie Robinson burst onto the scene in 1947, breaking baseball's color barrier and bringing the Negro leagues' electrifying style of play to the Majors. He quickly became baseball's top drawing card and a symbol of hope to millions of Americans. With Robinson as the catalyst, the Dodgers won six pennants in his 10 seasons. He dominated games on the basepaths, stealing home 19 times while riling opposing pitchers with his daring baserunning style. Robinson was named National League MVP in 1949, leading the loop in hitting .342 and steals 37, while knocking in 124 runs.
