Jackie Robinson

I have always admired Jackie Robinson and have always looked up to him as a hero. I played baseball for seven years of my life and during that time I have always loved the Dodgers. Furthermore, Jackie Robinson is an American hero for all colored people, African Americans especially. He didn’t care what people thought of him even though most people and players hated him, he just loved playing baseball and he was good at it. He fought through adversity and became one of the greatest baseball players of all time. I want to do Jackie Robinson for my project because I think it might teach me a few things about being grateful and not complaining when I go through hardships.
