Players in major league history

  • Jackie Robinson (1919 - 1972)

    During the winter months, many American players would travel to the Caribbean to play winter ball, including Jackie Robinson, shown here signing autographs during a game in Havana, Cuba, in 1947. Just weeks after this photograph was taken, Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball, making it possible for other Latino and African American players to play in the major leagues.
