Description

On April 15, 1947, a young, promising second baseman took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers. 

All eyes in the world of baseball, and indeed the United States, were focused on this player and this game. However, this wasn’t the normal debut of a rookie player. 

This game marked the breaking of the long-standing color barrier that had kept hundreds of the greatest baseball players out of the major leagues. 

Learn more about Jackie Robinson and the breaking of baseball’s color barrier on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
