Jackie Robinson impacts America
In 1945, Jackie Robinson signed a contract to play for the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League for a salary of $400 per month. In his one and only season in the Negro Leagues, he batted .387 and appeared in the league’s All-Star Game. Later in that same year, Brooklyn Dodgers’ President and General Manager Branch Rickey, who had been scouting the Negro Leagues for talent, signed Robinson to a contract to play for the Dodgers’ International League affiliate in Montreal for the 1946 season. Of course, just one year after playing for Montreal, Jackie Robinson broke the Major League’s color barrier when he debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.

Larry Hagman as Captain Tony Nelson in the TV show I Dream of Jeannie
I Dream of Jeannie Debuted on September 18, 1965 Sidney Sheldon's magical creation, I Dream of Jeannie was a delightful eye-blinking, belly-button humorous sitcom. The premise for the show was a simple story line of "Astronaut meets Genie, Genie loves Astronaut, Astronaut marries Genie story." The stars were Larry Hagman (the Astronaut) and Barbara Eden (the Genie). Their chemistry was genuine and resulted in 5 successful seasons.
