The number 42 is the only number in the major leagues that is retired. He was the first African American to play in the major leagues. "Jackie said how I played yesterday is all that counts.
He was a leader by becoming the first African American to play in the major leagues. He got called many bad names. He got so mad he broke his bat on the wall. The fans would throw stuff at him and call him names. Who would go throught that and not be a leader." Jackie said there is not a America in this country that is free until every one is free."
Jackie not only had lerdership he had couruag. He was not scared of the white people that screamed at him. He cep his cool and played the game. He could hit,run and throw like a boss. "He would Steal every base he could. A life is worth nothin unless it is good."
Jackie was thoughtful by joining the army and helping his country. He went to sever and when he got back we just hated him. "Jackie said baseball is like a game of poker nobody wants to quit when he is losing and nobody wants to quit when they are ahead." Jackie was thoughtful and was a good man.
