Player Biography
Branch Rickey spent half a century as a baseball visionary. With the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1920s and 1930s, Rickey invented the modern farm system, promoting a new way of training and developing players. After joining the Brooklyn Dodgers, Rickey became the first executive to challenge baseball’s color line when he signed Jackie Robinson, who would become the major leagues’ first African-American player in the 20th century in 1947. When Robinson asked Rickey if he was looking for a Negro who was afraid to fight back, Rickey replied, “No. I’m looking for a ballplayer with the guts enough not to.”
