Synopsis by Scott Albright

Follow the inspiring journey of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, a monumentally gifted athlete whose greatest feat was accomplished off the playing field. With his dramatic entrance into major league baseball in 1947, Robinson smashed the color barrier and changed professional sports and the country forever. This biographical film tells the Hall of Famer's dramatic story from his early days as a successful college athlete to his history-making contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers, which made him the first African-American to play professionally the previously all-white sport.
