Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Although in 1947 Major League Baseball was only open to white players, the extraordinary talent of Jackie Robinson could not be denied and, after being given the opportunity to play, proved to everyone that he was just as capable--sometimes even more so--than the rest.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Man on third. Two outs. The pitcher eyes the base runner, checks for the sign. The fans in the jammed stadium hold their breath. Flapping his outstretched arms like wings, number 42 leads off again. It is September 1955, game one of the World Series, the Yankees versus the Dodgers, and Jackie Robinson is about to do the unbelievable. Attempt to steal home. In a World Series game. To race a baseball thrown from the pitcher's mound and win! Is it possible? Yes, it is -- if you are Jackie Robinson!
