about

The legendary Jackie Robinson broke major league baseball’s color barrier in 1947 when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers. That same year he was chosen MLB’s Rookie of the Year. The first African American to play in the major league since the late 19th century, Robinson lead a distinguished career on the diamond, ultimately being inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Amazing Baseball Heroes profiles twenty American baseball legends—including Jackie Robinson—complete with statistics and facts that show their athletic skills and determination were second to none. They overcame the lack of educational opportunities, poverty, and racial discrimination, yet they refused to give in and were not outplayed.

These mens’ stories travel beyond baseball and race, to a place where faith, courage, and character triumph.
