With the Dodgers in the World Series, let’s revisit the story of one of the legends of American baseball.

和世界系列赛(World Series)中的道奇队(Dodgers)一起,我们来回顾一下美国棒球史上的一则传奇故事吧。

Jackie Robinson took the first step toward becoming Major League Baseball’s first African-American player 72 years ago this month, signing with a farm team of the Dodgers organization. (They were the Brooklyn Dodgers then. They moved to Los Angeles in 1957.)

72年前的本月,杰基·罗宾逊(Jackie Robinson)向成为美国职业棒球大联盟(Major League Baseball)的首位黑人球员迈出了第一步,与道奇系统下的一支青年队签下了合约(当时他们叫布鲁克林道奇队,于1957年搬至洛杉矶)。

He made his major-league debut on April 15, 1947, an experience he described in his autobiography:

1947年4月15日,他首次在大联盟亮相,在自传中,他描述了这一经历:

“I had to fight hard against loneliness, abuse and the knowledge that any mistake I made would be magnified because I was the only black man out there. Many people resented my impatience and honesty, but I never cared about acceptance as much as I cared about respect.”

“我知道自己犯下的任何错都将被放大,我必须要与孤独、辱骂和这一点进行顽强抗争,只因为我是里面唯一一名黑人。不少人憎恶我的急躁和诚实,但我从未像在乎尊重那样在乎被接纳。”

He was a huge star, becoming rookie of the year and drawing enormous crowds. He stole home in Game 1 of the 1955 World Series, helping the Dodgers beat the New York Yankees for their first championship.

当时他是一名巨星,拿到了最佳新人奖,吸引了无数球迷。1955年世界系列赛的首场比赛中他偷得本垒,助道奇队打败了纽约洋基队(New York Yankees),首次夺得冠军。

After retiring, he became a prosperous businessman and was influential in politics. He died on Oct. 24, 1972, of a heart attack. He was 53.

退役后,他成为了一名成功的商人,在政界也颇具影响力。他于1972年10月24日因心脏病突发去世,时年53岁。
