A lot has changed since then. The open and virulent racism on display then is no longer tolerated in most quarters of our society. But some of the elements at play back then are in play now as our state and nation wrestle with how to balance economic and racial justice with business growth. Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey astutely realized that equity was good economics and that opening up his team and the sport to a large, previously excluded class of talented players would improve the game, despite the backlash from some white players and fans. The next wave of baseball superstars — including Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente — was disproportionately African American and Latino, and these players enriched the game immeasurably. And in 1955, at long last for the “bums” who had never won a World Series, with Robinson and other black players on their roster, the Dodgers beat their Yankee arch-rivals to win it all.
AML is more common among children and senior adults. It is found commonly during the ages of 2-5 in children and shows another peak in old age. The term ‘acute’ is assigned to describe the short time course of the disease because if left untreated, the disease can cause death in a short number of months. ALL is caused by the spreading of these malignant immature white blood cells throughout the whole body, specially spleen, lungs and lymph nodes. Diagnosis is usually done through medical history, physical examination and complete blood count. The blood count shows if there is a high level of lymphoblasts or a low level of red blood cells in the system.
