Calling all baseball fans! Watch THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY, starring Jackie Robinson as himself. A beautifully told story of #42, the first African American Major League baseball player, who broke the color barrier at the urging of then Brooklyn Dodgers-owner Branch Rickey. Rickey is quoted as saying, "Some day I'm going to have to stand before God, and if He asks me why I didn't let that [Jackie] Robinson fellow play ball, I don't think saying 'because of the color of his skin' would be a good enough answer."
