Times: 7 pm

At the start of the summer of 1947, television was brand new, the sound barrier had never been broken, and baseball was a white man’s game. By the time the fall arrived, all of that had changed. President Truman addressed the nation for the first time on TV, Chuck Yeager flew faster than any at-batman ever had, and Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play major league baseball. It was no accident that Jackie Robinson was chosen as the first ballplayer to break the color barrier.
