    Jackie Robinson
    's professional baseball career began in the Negro Leagues in 1945 with the Kansas City Monarchs. He showed good playing ability and attracted the attention of the scouts of Brooklyn Dodger General Manager Branch Rickey . Rickey was planning to integrate the major leagues and was looking for a talented athlete with the right personality to deal with the problems this integration would cause. In 1947, Jackie Robinson became the first African American to play in the modern major leagues, breaking the color barrier that had existed since the late 1800s. He played with the Dodgers through the 1956 season and finished his career with a lifetime average of .311. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.

    The Trailblazer
    Jackie Robinson
    He thrilled fans, shattered baseball's color barrier and changed the face of the nation BY HENRY AARON I was 14 years old when I first saw Jackie Robinson. It was the spring of 1948, the year after Jackie changed my life by breaking baseball's color line. His team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, made a stop in my hometown of Mobile, Ala., while barnstorming its way north to start the season, and while he was there, Jackie spoke to a big crowd of black folks over on Davis Avenue. I think he talked about segregation, but I didn't hear a word that came out of his mouth. Jackie Robinson was such a hero to me that I couldn't do anything but gawk at him. They say certain people are bigger than life, but Jackie Robinson is the only man I've known who truly was. In 1947 life in Americaat least my America, and Jackie'swas segregation. It was two worlds that were afraid of each other. There were separate schools for blacks and whites, separate restaurants, separate hotels, separate drinking fountains and separate baseball leagues. Life was unkind to black people who tried to bring those worlds together. It could be hateful. But Jackie Robinson, God bless him, was bigger than all of that. Jackie Robinson had to be bigger than life. He had to be bigger than the Brooklyn teammates who got up a petition to keep him off the ball club, bigger than the pitchers who threw at him or the base runners who dug their spikes into his shin, bigger than the bench jockeys who hollered for him to carry their bags and shine their shoes, bigger than the so-called fans who mocked him with mops on their heads and wrote him death threats.

    Updated: Sunday February 02, 2003 8:51 PM
    BOSTON (AP) Jackie Robinson will be nominated for the Congressional Gold Medal in recognition of his achievements as the first black player in major league baseball, the Boston Red Sox said. Four U.S. senators, including Massachusetts Democrats Edward M. Kennedy and John F. Kerry, and Reps. Richard E. Neal, D-Mass., and Peter King, R-N.Y., will file the legislation on Monday. "Jackie Robinson was more than a sports hero, he was an American hero. He transcended sports and helped transform the battle for civil rights," Kerry said. "While we celebrate his birthday it is only appropriate that we honor this man who did so much to make our nation a better place to live for all our citizens." Since 1776 there have been approximately 300 recipients of a Congressional Gold Medal, including George Washington, Joe Louis, Robert Frost, and Mother Teresa. Robinson broke major league baseball's color barrier when he took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. He was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1962, and in 1997 baseball celebrated the 50th anniversary of his rookie season by retiring his number 42 on all teams.

Oct. 24, 1972, Stamford, Conn.), first black baseball player in the U.S. major leagues during the 20th century, an infielder and outfielder for the Brooklyn Dodgers of the National League from 1947 through 1956. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. Reared in Pasadena, Calif., Robinson became an outstanding all-around athlete at Pasadena Junior College and the University of California at Los Angeles. He excelled in football, basketball, and track as well as baseball. Robinson withdrew from U.C.L.A. in his third year to help his mother care for the family. In 1942 he entered the U.S. Army, attended officer candidate school, was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1943, and received a medical discharge in 1945. He then played professional football in Hawaii and baseball with the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro National League On Oct. 23, 1945, Robinson and pitcher John Wright, also black, were signed by Branch Rickey, president of the Brooklyn club, to play on a Dodger farm team, the Montreal Royals of the International League. Robinson led that league in batting average in 1946 and was brought up to play for Brooklyn in 1947. He was an immediate success. Leading the National League in stolen bases, he was chosen rookie of the year. In 1949 he won the batting championship with a .342 average and was voted the league's most valuable player. His career average was .311. As a base runner, Robinson unnerved opposing pitchers and terrorized infielders who had to try to prevent his stealing bases.
