As the review points out this movie may not win any Oscars but is an important lesson, particularly for some of our younger fans and players. No movie can be historically accurate but the story it tells is significant. Robinson’s entry into the Major Leagues in 1947 was one of the greatest moments in big league baseball. Despite the adversity that Robinson faced, he continued throughout his career and life to advocate for civil rights and his efforts benefited all races. Jackie Robinson played his first games in “the bigs” on April 15th, 1947. The country got better that day.
