Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

Hall of Fame Class of 2014 Member Tony La Russa talks about becoming a big league manager at a fairly young age and the men who influenced his long and successful career.

Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier. Hank Aaron broke the game’s most sacred record. During their historic journeys, both men overcame racism and bigotry to become American heroes. Their stories live on today at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Learn about these two African-American legends and how they turned back hatred en route to Cooperstown through a Google Plus #ConnectedClassrooms   Hangout at the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame’s manager of digital and outreach learning, Bruce Markusen, takes students on this journey through time in “Jackie and The Hammer: Two Hall of Famers Linked in the Fight for Civil Rights.” Sign up your classroom here: http://goo.gl/uLufZq
