Best Answer

One important effect was that Jackie Robinson was the first african-american ballplayer to play Major League Baseball. His acceptance onto the Dodgers was not a pleasant one. The rest of his teammates despised him being on the team, and it was a battle Jackie had to overcome to be accepted. What he went through paved the way for other African-americans and other races to play baseball. In addition, his acceptance into the majors was also a major step forward in the Civil Rights Movement. Jackie Robinson is a major icon for African Americans.
