I never had it made by Jackie Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before Barry Bonds, before Reggie Jackson, before Hank Aaron, baseball's stars had one undeniable trait in common: they were all white. In 1947, Jackie Robinson broke that barrier, striking a crucial blow for racial equality and changing the world of sports forever. I Never Had It Made is Robinson's own account of what it took to become the first black man in history to play in the major leagues. I Never Had It Made recalls Robinson's early years and influences: his time at UCLA, where he became the school's first four-letter athlete; his army stint during World War II, when he challenged Jim Crow laws and narrowly escaped court martial; his years of frustration, on and off the field, with the Negro Leagues; and finally that fateful day when Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers proposed what became known as the "Noble Experiment"--Robinson would step up to bat to integrate and revolutionize baseball. More than a baseball story, I Never Had It Made also reveals the highs and lows of Robinson's life after baseball. He recounts his political aspirations and civil rights activism; his friendships with Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, William Buckley, Jr., and Nelson Rockefeller; and his troubled relationship with his son, Jackie, Jr

Baseball player Henry “Hank” Aaron was born in Mobile, Alabama on February 5, 1934. His family moved to Toulminville, a suburb of Mobile, when he was eight years old. In 1951, he joined the semi-pro Mobile Black Bears, and a year later, was recruited to join the Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro Leagues. He played briefly, until the Milwaukee Braves of the Major Leagues bought his contract. Aaron arrived in the Major Leagues in 1954, immediately becoming a force and leading the Braves to a World Series title in 1957. A regular leader in batting average and home runs, Aaron was a single shot behind Babe Ruth following the 1973 season, but tied the record the next season, and broke it on April 8, 1974. He was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, also receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom that year. He opened a series of car dealerships following retirement
