Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color line in 1947, but it took another generation of Black and Latino players to make the sport truly open to all. Playing in remote minor-league towns where racial segregation remained a fact of life well into the 1960s, these were the men who, before they could live their big-league dreams, first had to beat Jim Crow. Featuring James “Mudcat” Grant, Jimmy Wynn, J.R. Richard, Grover “Deacon” Jones, Orlando Cepeda, and Tony Pérez.
