JACKIE ROBINSON BIOGRAPHY

Jack Roosevelt Robinson (January 31, 1919 - October 24, 1972) became the first black Major League baseball player of the modern era in 1947. The significance of this event in U.S history is such that every major league baseball team has retired his number, 42.
Born in Cairo, Georgia, USA. Jackie Robinson was a football and baseball star at the University of California in Los Angeles, where he played with Kenny Washington, who would become one of the first black players in the National Football League. After serving in the military during World War II, Robinson played baseball for a while for the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro Leagues. There, he was noticed by a scout working for Branch Rickey.

Rickey was the club president and general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, and had the secret goal of signing a group of black ballplayers for the Dodgers. Previous attempts at signing black ballplayers had been thwarted by league officials and rival clubs in the past, however, and so Rickey operated under cover. His scouts were, supposedly, scouting for a new all-black league Rickey was forming. Even the scouts themselves did not know the true objective.
