Jackie Robinson Scorecard
Does a History Detectives fan hold a piece of baseball history? In a 1940’s Pittsburgh Pirates program, he found a scorecard for a game between two unusual teams: the Majors’ All Stars and Robinson’s All Stars.
Jackie Robinson’s team is made up of both black and white players, yet this game appears to have occurred before Robinson became the first black major league baseball player in 1947.
Could this game have been a test to find out how America would react to integrated baseball?
