In support of Scholastic's Breaking Barriers: In Sports, In Life -- an educational program designed to teach young students about obstacles faced by Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson as he broke baseball's color barrier in 1947 -- the Pirates encourage local schools and youth groups to implement his story into their curriculum.

Visit Scholastic.com/BreakingBarriers for downloadable classroom resources including lesson plans, printable, digital interactives, and video extensions. If you are interested in receiving incentives to encouraged student participation, contact [email protected].
