Plot

It's 1942, and Jackie Robinson isn't just one of the most skilled baseball players in the American Negro League. He's one of the best players in the world. But when an agent for the Dodgers comes to scout him, he makes clear that he's not willing to just accept blatant racism in exchange for being allowed in the white leagues. But he pushes forward for the sake of his family and the sake of his sport despite the fact that other players on his team petition to have him removed. Will Jackie's skill be enough to overcome the racism he faces on the diamond and everywhere else?
