How He Became Famous

He became famous when he started playing on Montreal Royals. The reason he got famous was because when he got to that team was when he Bat and made a home run. Everyone was cheering for him, he got famous by just that bat, if he didn't I bet he'd still be famous for being a good baseball player still. When he made all of that some people were mean to him and thought bad and they thought that was a lucky hit. So when they thought that Jackie came again one more time and did another home run this time EVERYONE thought he was good.

His Childhood

His life when he was a child wasn't easy it was a tough life for him and his family. So this is how it all started. Jackie's family was poor they lived in small town in Georgia. They rented a piece of land to a farm to make some money at least. Jackie was born January 31, 1919 after Jackie was born his father left, after they moved to Pasadena, California. Jackie grew up when there was some problems between Colored and White. Jackie still was proud of everyone he wasn't embarrassed to be colored. Some of the white people thought the colored people where not as good as the white because they had dark skin. so after a while Jackie was walking around when he found a mitt and a ball, but he didn't know how to use it so he just started throwing it up and then a white person appeared and said that's quite a arm there son. Jackie was confused, after a while later (2 Years) Jackie was playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, he was one of the best players. And so Jackie Robinson also changed the world for some dark skin people to play the same a the white.
