Reading Baseball: Jackie Robinson
Most people are aware Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. But, in his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson looks at a part of Robinson's storied history you may not know much about.
Reading Baseball is a series of original essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, editor of the St. Louis Baseball Reader and the author of Growing Up With Clemente.
