'''Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson''' (January 31, 1919—October 24, 1972) was a second baseman for the Brooklyn Dodgers. While an amazing athlete in many respects, he's most remembered for being the first black player to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball.[[note]]While black players appeared in top-level professional baseball in the 1870s and 1880s, an informal but rigidly enforced color line emerged in the latter decade, and persisted until Robinson.[[/note]]
