OPEN EDITION FINE ART ARCHIVAL PRINT FROM THE SPORT COLLECTION
Jackie Robinson fights to evade the tag of Philadelphia Phillies’ third baseman Putsy Caballero, a fitting metaphor for Robinson’s greater struggle for tolerance and acceptance. In 1947, a year prior, the Dodger great weathered a now infamous verbal assault; Phillies manager Ben Chapman directed endless racial slurs and taunts towards Robinson mid-game, the severity of which inspired considerable backlash. At a time of inequality and segregation, it was significant to have the public defend Major League Baseball’s first African-American. Chapman was fired after the 1948 season. Through his play on the field, Robinson became a cultural turning point.
