on 15 September 2011
A turning point in both baseball and American cultural history, Opening Day is the story behind Jackie Robinson's first year in baseball's major leagues. As the first black player in modern times, Robinson broke through the barriers of racial segregation. Eig tells us that he was a reluctant figurehead and symbol of racial equality. And little surprise, because there was still plenty of Americans out there who were vehemently against integration in baseball. This might not be the happiest read - it is easy to get frustrated and even angry with the characters involved - but it is ultimately a success story, and a watershed moment in social history.
