This true story of an American Legend, Jackie Robinson…he broke all odds, withstood bullying to the nth degree in his personal life, in the locker room and on the playing field. This man is a hero as he had the tenacity to stand up for what he truly possessed inside, the passion, and inborn talent to be the best baseball player on earth. (Women you can do this too!)

Diversity, Culture and Leadership – Inside Fenway Park: An Icon at 100 – Celebration on April 20, 2012
