Jackie Robinson Newsletter

Jackie is a very admirable person in history for many reasons. When he first joined the Major Leagues, Jackie was instructed by the Dodgers club leader, Branch Rickey, not to let his temper get the best of him. He did just that, even in times of harsh judgment, he was careful not to let his temper get him. Jackie was also very brave. When his family got death threats and threats to kidnap his son or hurt his wife, he simply ignored them and went on with life. Jackie was also very determined. Whenever he played a game of baseball, he came to beat you! That is why Jackie Robinson is a very admirable person.
