Photograph caption dated March 31, 1939 reads "U.C.L.A.'s big hope to upset Oregon State was Jumping Jackie Robinson, one of the most dangerous ball carriers on the coast when in top form. Robinson has recovered from injuries and he was to start today." Long before he broke Major League Baseball's color line with the Brooklyn Dodgers, Jackie Robinson excelled in football at UCLA. During the 1940s, he also played professionally, with the L.A. Bulldogs (football) and the L.A. Red Devils (basketball).
