** Lisa was also the first girl to join either of Springfield's peewee hockey teams, where she takes the position of goalie (against Bart who's the opposing team's point-scorer). Needless to say, the game ends on a penalty shot, allowing the Simpson kids to go one-on-one...

* In the same vein, ''TaishouYakyuuMusume'', only even more so a JackieRobinsonStory because as the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin name implies]], the story takes place in the Taishou period (early 1920s), where StayInTheKitchen was still a very common belief.

* In ''Literature/TheManWhoBroughtTheDodgersBackToBrooklyn'', the 1988 Brooklyn Dodgers sign pitcher Ruth Smelkinson, making her the first woman to play in Major League Baseball, and it's framed as a deliberate parallel to the real life Robinson story. It's actually downplayed a bit, as all Ruth really has to do is impress team owner Bobby Hanes with her pitching prowess (without any mention of him seeking league approval when he signs her), and public support is largely on her side.

* [[DragonridersOfPern Menolly]] in ''Dragonsinger'' and ''Dragonsong'' by Anne [=McCaffrey=] is the first woman to apprentice herself to the guild of Harpers in generations. There were in fact female Harpers before Menolly, but by the time Menolly comes along the population in general (particularly, her own family) is unaware of the precedent. Despite having the sponsorship of the Masterharper himself, several of the Harpers refuse to teach Menolly or take her seriously.

[[folder: Stand-Up Comedy]]

* Creator/BillBurr had a stand-up bit about this, wherein he mocked the overuse of this trope in film, to the point that they were beginning to run out of sports to tell the Jackie Robertson Story with.

* ''Film/RememberTheTitans'' does this with an entire squad of African-American students, set just after United States schools were racially integrated in 1971. The first half of the movie is about the white athletes and black athletes learning to overcome their differences, while the second half deals with the implications of that unity in a town that is still extremely racist.

* In the family comedy film ''Film/LittleGiants'', it is Becky O'Shea's getting rejected from the local Pee-Wee football team (for nothing more than being a girl) that inspires her father Danny (played by RickMoranis) to create a team from everyone who got rejected from that team.
