Wh is Jack Roosevelt Robinson?
Jack Roosevelt Robinson (Jan. 31 , 1919 – October 24, 1972) was an American professional baseball player who was the first African American to enter Major League Baseball (MLB) in the modern era.
Robinson crossed the baseball color line when he started his first base with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.
When the Dodgers signed Robinson, they declared the end of racial discrimination of professional baseball, which had limited black participants to the Black League since the 1880s. In 1962, Robinson was named to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
