Best Answer

Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn Dodgers, 1947, was the first black player to play Major League Baseball in the modern era.

But it was a man named Moses Walker (b. 1856) who played back in 1884. However, some say that William Edward White was the first. He was half white and half black, and played one game in 1879.
