Thank You, Jackie Robinson

Thank You, Jackie Robinson

by Barbara Cohen
After Sam's father dies, he becomes so wrapped up in the Brooklyn Dodgers that he can describe every game they've played in the last four years. Nobody is interested, until Sam meets Davy. Although they come from different races, religions, and generations, their newfound friendship goes well beyond baseball.
