Jackie Robinson. Without him, where would the world of sports be today?

 

Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia into a family of sharecroppers, who moved to Pasadena, California about a year into his life. Robinson’s family was very athletic. His older brother Mack won an silver medal at the 1936 Summer Olympics. During High school, Jackie lettered in an unprecedented four sports. Those sports were football, basketball, track, and of course baseball

 

He would continue to play all four sports in junior college at Pasadena Junior College and then at UCLA. During his time at UCLA, his football team would have an undefeated season, and he won the 1940 NCAA National Championship in the long jump. Many people actually said that baseball was his worst sport while at UCLA.

 

His baseball career would start with the Kansas City Monarchs, a team in the Negro League. He would play there until Brooklyn Dodgers President and General Manager Branch Rickey signed him to a Minor League contract. He would play for the Dodgers minor league affiliate—the Montreal Royals—for one season before being called up the majors 6 days before the start of the 1947 season.

 

Robinson would go on to have an extremely successful career on top of being the most influential person to ever put on a uniform. He made six all star games, won the rookie of the year, won a batting title, won a world series, and even won an NL MVP award. His jersey number 42 is the only jersey retired all of baseball.
