Branch Rickey in 1913

Branch Rickey in 1913 Visual Arts American History Social Studies Sports

Branch Rickey was still a young man (and a college student) when he was coaching baseball for Ohio Wesleyan.  In 1910, he witnessed an event which caused him to despise America's "separate but equal" laws more than usual. 

Two years later, c. 1912, Rickey was photographed with University of Michigan's baseball team.  While a student at U of M's law school, he also coached the team.
