THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY
Released May 16, 1950  New York City, NY⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a student at UCLA in 1940, Jackie Robinson developed the numerous skills involved in playing baseball, basketball, football, and track that earned him a statewide reputation in sports. He played professional football with the Los Angeles Bulldogs in 1941, and after service as a lieutenant in World War II returned to the East Coast where he was signed by a minor-league Brooklyn Dodgers farm club, the Montreal Royals. After winning the league’s batting title in 1946, Robinson became the first African American to play major-league baseball, joining the National League as first baseman for the Brooklyn Dodgers and making his debut on April 15, 1947. Racist spectators and opponents publicly provoked him, but conscious of his unique position as a role model, Robinson managed to ignore all racial epithets, even when his own teammates circulated a petition to eject him from the team. After leading the Dodgers to their 1949 pennant, Robinson took time off to star in this low-budget Hollywood film about his life with co-stars Ruby Dee, Louise Beavers, Joel Fluellen, Bernie Hamilton and football great, Kenny Washington.
Robinson played with the Dodgers throughout his entire major-league career (1947-1956). Having endured years of openly expressed racial prejudice, he became the first African American to receive recognition in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, in 1962. He succeeded in breaking racial barriers and paved the way for other black athletes to participate in pro sports. In 1997, As a tribute, major league baseball retired Robinson’s jersey number 42 at every major league ballpark. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Currently on a greyhound going through my photos and wanted to share these! I had the chance to admire this book two summers back while with my significant other on one of our trips to Texas visiting family. After sparking up baseball conversation with my girlfriends uncle (the man holding the book) he suggested that I read a book titled “Baseball has done it” by Jackie Robinson. ——————————-
After hearing some of the background on the book the conversation switched gears and my girlfriends uncle had left the room. While I didn’t think anything of it he soon came back in to the room with his personally autographed hard copy of the book in absolute mint condition. Seeing Jackie’s autograph in his book gave me chills. If you’re not familiar with Jackie he is one of the most influential figures in the history of the game of baseball. Tied in with viewing the book were great stories about when and where the book and autograph were received. Those stories were then followed up by more great stories about the opportunity to watch him play.
___________________________________________
While I was told it would be very difficult to find a hard copy of this book I ended up finding 1 on eBay and decided to start my own book collection that day. _____________________________________________
While they’re a lot of books out there regarding Jackie Robinson this is the one I recommend to you. To anyone out there looking for a quality read with perspectives from many great individuals around the game during that time this book makes a lot of sense. 👌

  • On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson, Branch Rickey, and the Brooklyn Dodgers changed the landscape of baseball forever by permanently desegregating the sport. 72 years later to the day, it is still one of the most monumental moments in modern history, teaching young boys and girls of future American generations, to experience the game as one played by extremely talented ball players of all colors, and from all different corners of the earth, instead of talented men based solely on the color of their skin. The amount of thanks we owe Mr. Robinson for what he did, and for what he had to endure in making this decision, will never be enough. Today we celebrate Jackie Robinson Day. Every player across Major League Baseball honors this day by wearing the number 42 on their back. If not for him, none of them would be on the field today. Happy Jackie Robinson Day. #JackieRobinson #JackieRobinsonDay #MiamiMarlins #ChicagoCubs #MarlinsVsCubs #42 #BranchRickey #Dodgers #MLB

  • Jackie Robinson fue el primer negro en jugar en las Grandes Ligas, pero más allá de esa hazaña, fue todo lo que tuvo que soportar (racismo), incluso insultos de sus compañeros de equipo, para ganarse el máximo respeto. No hay que olvidar a #BranchRickey, quien convenció a Jackie a firmar con #DodgersDeBrooklyn.

  • Today we take a moment, like we do every year, to honor and remember what Jackie Robinson truly did on that Opening Day in 1947. 
It was more than a baseball game. More than a major league debut. 
But more of shattering a color barrier and lines of segregation. 
Overcoming ridicule, torment, hatred and racism in its most raw form, Jackie stood his ground and endured more than most men would have been able to handle and did so with a grace unlike any other. 
So thank you Mr. Robinson for all you did to try to make our country and our world a better place. 
If you have not seen it, I recommend you all to watch the movie “42”. Even if you are not a baseball fan, it gives a powerful portrayal of exactly what this man went through and how he overcame. #jackierobinson #jackierobinsonday2018 #baseball #shatteredbarriers #endracism #brooklyndodgers #branchrickey

We are excited to reveal @davehobrecht’s newest painting “Game Changer,” showcasing The All-Time Dodgers 2nd baseman, Jackie Robinson. Hobrecht knew that Jackie’s legacy extended far beyond the game of baseball. He wanted to create something that not only paid tribute to Jackie himself, but also to all of the lives that he affected. Branch Rickey and Vin Scully look on as Dodger players of all races, religions, and ethnicities line up to shake Jackie’s hand and pay him their respects. This is a legendary painting for a legendary man. Canvas and wood prints of “Game Changer” will be available on thealltime.com very soon!
