Branch Rickey was a very unique man. Also, many people in major leagues tried to make the mixed races play together no one succeeded until Brooklyn Dodger's general manager Branch Rickey tried his "great experiment". Rickey wanted a man who would restrain himself from responding to the ugliness of racial hatred that was likely to come. In 1945, Baseball changed forever when Rickey and Robinson of the Negro League's Kansas City Monarchs agreed to a contract that would bring Robinson into the major leagues in 1947. Rickey also selected Robinson to be the first Africa-American to play in the baseball majors.
