What baseball fan wouldn’t love to travel back to 1947 to witness the drama of Jackie Robinson’s historic season with the Brooklyn Dodgers? A rare baseball card is Joey’s ticket for time travel to Branch Rickey’s office on the day that Jackie Robinson signed to play for the major leagues. The extraordinary twist: Joey is now black. Through his adventures Joey witnesses Jackie’s dedication, determination, courage and dignity during this turbulent time of segregation. Jackie and Me will have you on the edge of your seat as we all root for the man who changed the face of the game. Play Ball! Rated: G
