Was Jackie Robinson the first black baseball player?

Jackie Robinson became the first black player to break the color barrier in the Major Leagues. Robinson first appeared in a Major League Baseball game in 1947. With Robinson's introduction and immediate success, black players began to find widespread acceptance in the American national pastime. Along with fellow pioneers, including greats Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella, Robinson led the Dodgers on one of the most successful runs in baseball history, winning 6 pennants in 10 years.
