Jackie RobinsonJackie Robinson

One of the greatest tragedies in sports is that many people only know Jackie Robinson as the man who broke the color barrier in baseball during a time of extreme prejudice. But that is far from why he was a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 1962. Robinson was a six-time All-Star for the Brooklyn Dodgers, led them to a World Series in 1955, won the MLB Rookie of the Year in 1947, NL MVP in 1949 and batting title in 1949. He also led the league stolen bases in 1947 and 1949. Robinson played 10 seasons in the Major Leagues and batted .311/.409/.474 with 137 home runs, 734 RBIs, 1,518 hits, 273 doubles, 54 triples and 197 steals.
