Abstract:

"In March of 1948, Jackie Robinson and the Brooklyn Dodgers came to Mobile, Alabama, for an exhibition game. While the city's black population was thrilled to see the man who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier, Robinson's brief appearance did more for one man than fuel his excitement for the game." "Thirty-year-old Jesse Norwood had no baseball experience, but, through the game, he saw a way to help the scrawny youngsters that would congregate near his stoop gain a sense of pride and dignity in the segregated South of the 1950s." "Here's to You, Jackie Robinson is the emotionally charged story of Norwood's legend and legacy. Joe Formichella tells a hero's story that begins in a sandlot and ends in the Baseball Hall of Fame."--Jacket.
