"Today's high school baseball lesson is about a former gang member who was court marshaled for disobeying a superior officer...he ended up becoming the most symbolic sports figure in America. Who was it?"
Way before Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement, there was Jackie Robinson...
Jackie had no problem stirring the pot for what he believed. The charges were leveled against Robinson because, when he was in the military, he refused to sit in the back of the army transport bus. Even as the sergeant threatened him, Robinson didn't back down. Cooler heads prevailed, and the charges were eventually dropped.
Congrats to Steve Beer, former professional baseball player, for correctly answering "JACKIE ROBINSON".
