Not to mention that he made it into the Hall Of Fame, which very few stars get to be in. Then again what seems great has to come to an end with Babe Ruth retiring in the year of 1934. On the plus side Gehrig’s took a trip up with him winning the Triple Crown even after one of his best friends had left the team.

Jackie’s .297 batting average, twelve home runs, and twenty-nine stolen bases lead him to the Rookie of the Year Award(Carson). Jackie was the first African American to play professional baseball despite the color barrier(Kashatus).

He also kept his own records for his own benefit and he reported that he pitched in more than 2,500 games and won at least 200.
