Jackie Robinson
“Many people resented my impatience and honesty, but I never cared about acceptance as much as I cared about respect.” Jackie Robinson (1919-1972) earned respect as a baseball player because of his talents as a fielder, batter, and daring base runner. His integrity and determination earned him admiration off the field.
 
Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey knew the first black player in the major leagues couldn’t be just anyone. He chose Robinson to move from the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League to the Dodgers. Robinson played his first major league game on April 15, 1947, a defining moment not only in sports but in history.
 
Robinson’s career was full of great moments. One of his outstanding years was 1949, when he batted .342, scored 122 runs, and hit home 124 more. He was the National League’s Most Valuable Player that year. In 1962, Robinson was selected to the Hall of Fame.
 
Even under pressure, Robinson performed well. On the last day of the 1951 regular season, the Dodgers were tied with the Philadelphia Athletics in an extra-inning game. With the bases loaded and two out, Robinson dived to grab a hard line drive and was knocked unconscious. Two innings later, he hit a game-winning homer that put the Dodgers into the pennant race.
