Then Steve learns that his new neighbor is none other than Jackie Robinson, his hero who broke the color barrier in baseball just the year before! This is going to be the best baseball season ever! Based on a true story, and written by Jackie Robinson's daughter, this is a meaningful and fascinating read.
