Jackie Robinson And Emmett Ashford: Highlighting Jackie Robinson’s pioneering role as the first African American to officially play in the major leagues in the 20th century and his status as the most important professional baseball player in postwar America. Also featured is Emmett Ashford, the first African American umpire to officiate in the minor leagues in 1951 and in the major leagues in 1966.
