Jackie Robinson Biography

The MLB changes the playoff structue
One Jackie Robinson story I heard as a child that best describes the change that would be needed in sports, starts outside a baseball stadium. With Jackie being hounded by dozens of reporters, a mob began to form. This mob was filled with white and black men and women. They all cheered for one man, with one voice and one heart.

In that one moment the world of sports created a legend but Jackie Robinson made a legend a cultural icon. His courage and his dedication to the sport made this humble man one of the greatest heros in sports. I think one reporter said it may have been one of the first times Jackie Robinson ran away from a mob in joy rather than fear.
Jackie Robinson picture isn't a mirror image of what the world looks like today, but a moment that has transcended sports. Jackie Robinson had the patience of a saint and became more than just a great baseball player. He became hope. He was not just another black baseball player but a leader. He didn't set up rallies or make big heroic speeches, but his example gave hope to many who didn't belive it could be done. He was a pioneer for the game of baseball and for the world we write in today.
With one swing of his bat Jackie Robinson could lift the concerns of every man. Every man could feel the impact one man could make. If they didn't quite feel it at the time they soon found that time can change one's beliefs. Unfortunately in 1940 he had just as many fans as he had enemies. Those enemies were fans of segregation. When Jackie Robinson stepped onto the field it was always more than just the game of baseball. It was about a vision and a new way to see the world we live in. Sports has always been more than just a game, but moments in time we all share. Moments that transcend time.
In this Jackie Robinson biography I will be discussing a MLB icon that meant more to the game of baseball than any man before him. Jackie Robinson not only transcended the game of baseball, he was one of the most legendary sports icons this world has ever seen. In Jackie Robinson career he faced the most unimaginable things in his everyday life. However this man not only triumphed over every challenge he faced, he did it with character and grace. With courage and the will to be great he would bring hope into neighborhoods where once there laid only dispear.
