Description
In this photo opportunity, Phillies manager Ben Chapman refused to shake Jackie Robinson’s hand. Instead, he leaned toward Robinson and said quietly, “Jackie, you know, you’re a good ballplayer, but you’re still a nigger to me.” Robinson replied by leading the Dodgers to the pennant and winning rookie of the year honors.
