I didn¿t like the way the white people treated Jackie Robinson. They tried to spike him. In this one part every black person who played baseball had to make up their own teams. They made up Cuban Giants, Cuban x Giants, Leland Giants, Columbia Giants. They came up with really good teams. Because he was the only black player (Jackie Robinson) then more black people came then they had to make up their own teams. You should read the book Jackie Robinson. I like this book about the history of Jackie Robinson. This book is good. I recommend you read this book because Jackie Robinson was the first black player to play on a white team that didn¿t like him. That's what makes this book so interesting.
