He started playing in the Negro Leagues in September 1945.
Later on that year he was signed to the Brooklyn Dodgers organization, which made him the first black man to play in the Major Leagues. "It kills me to lose. If I'm a troublemaker, and I don't think that my temper makes me one, then it's because I can't stand losing. That's the way I am about winning, all I ever wanted to do was finish first."

He got caught by the police many times but was sent off with a warning
One man changed his whole criminal life by saying these very words "If you keep what you're doing your mother will pay the price."
