Rickey's is an amazing American tale of faith, idealism and a strong work ethic that took him to the pinnacle of success and earned him a place not only in the Baseball Hall of Fame but also in history. 

Pulitzer prize-winning author and journalist, Jimmy Breslin remembers the man who revolutionized baseball.
