Oh yeah Doub, I know you understand that. But there are still people that believe players like Gibson, Paige, or even Monte Irvin should've been chosen over Robinson, but I don't think these people fully understand the reasons they weren't chosen.

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives- Jackie Robinson
