In history, many parts of America were segregated, as well as baseball. Instead of just having major league baseball, there were two leagues, the Major League and the Negro League. After many years, things changed and there was no longer two leagues because of a man named Jackie Robinson. This change started in 1945 when Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers general manager, signed a contract with Jackie Robinson bringing him into the Major Leagues. Just about two years later, Jackie played his first game as a Brooklyn Dodger. Jackie faced lots of racism while playing Major League baseball but he was brave and kept going. Despite hardships, Jackie was very successful in baseball for years after his first game. He was awarded the first-ever Rookie of the Year title in 1947. Following this, in 1949, Jackie was awarded National League’s Most Valuable Player. Later, in 1955 Jackie helped lead the Dodgers to a win at the world series. Finally, ending Jackie’s baseball carrier, Jackie retired from baseball in 1956 after his last game on October 10. After retiring from baseball, Jackie became the first African-American in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.

a description of kid president

Robby Novak is a young boy who is very inspiring in many ways. His life may look awesome on his ‘Kid President’ videos. However, his life consists of more than having fun online and inspiring others. Robby has a rare brittle bone disease known as osteogenesis imperfecta. This disease causes Robby to break bones easily. However, he still perseveres and instead of feeling bad for himself, he inspires others in so many different ways. Robby’s sister also has OI. Robby and his sister need to get special treatment for OI. For instance, they go into the hospital every couple months to get an infusion of medicine to make their bones stronger. Robby and his sister persevere through their disease by thinking of it as an idle thing in their life. Even though, in reality, it’s not.
