In 1946 when Black baseball players were still not yet allowed to play in the major league, Brooklyn Dodger owner Branch Rickey decides it's time to allow them in. He establishes a team in the Negro League, and every great player in that league knows that Rickey plans to bring to the majors. And the two men who believe that they're on top of the list are Sachel Paige and Josh Gibson. But Rickey wants not only good players but good men and he feels that they're not. And one of Rickey's scouts sees a good prospect in rookie, Jackie Robinson.
