One of the most famous images in baseball history! After decades of segregation, Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey broke ranks and brought Jackie Robinson from the Negro Leagues to the Major Leagues, smashing the color barrier that kept African-Americans off the big stage. After a year in the minors, Jackie took the field in the big leagues for the first time on April 15, 1947 - and, to a standing ovation, scored the winning run! While even some teammates rejected Robinson's mere presence in the clubhouse, three of the classiest Dodgers of all-time showed true humanity and solidarity, boldly joining Jackie on the top step of the dugout. Spider Jorgensen, Pee Wee Reese, and Eddie Stanky, as true stand-up gentlemen, were also a minority that day in Flatbush.
