Did you know that it took 13 years to break the barrier? Ya, I am taking about the most famous baseball player, Jakie Robinson. April 15 marks the day of Jakie Robinson's color barrier of the year 1947. Jakie Robinson played short stop for the LA baseball team. Fifty years later we broke the barrier: in sports and in life. Until 1947 black and brown-skinned were in the Negro Leagues. Jakie Robinson changed alot for baseball teams and baseball seasons.
