Today many children dream of playing professionalnbsp;nbsp;baseball. Perhaps you are one of them. If you havenbsp;nbsp;good athletic skills and you work hard, your dreamnbsp;nbsp;may be realized. But this wasn't always true fornbsp;nbsp;athletes in the first part of this century. Morenbsp;nbsp;was required. A player had to be white. Blacknbsp;nbsp;players--no matter how well they could hit, catch, ornbsp;nbsp;throw--were not signed up by the majornbsp;nbsp;leagues. One brave black player named Jackie Robinsonnbsp;nbsp;worked to change the "rules," so thatnbsp;nbsp;all races could have the opportunity to fulfillnbsp;nbsp;their dreams on the baseball diamond--or anywhere.nbsp;nbsp;This is Jackie Robinson's story.
