Compare / Contrast JR & STW
Jackie And Shirley
This is how Jackie’s life went. Jackie Robinson was the first black baseball player in the M.L.B.. Even though he was called names, beaten, and disrespected he kept following his dream. He walked funny, he was ‘pidgin toed’. First he played for the Montreal Blues, then he was bumped up to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Many players treated him bad because he was black.
If you want to learn about Shirley, keep reading. Shirley Temple Wong moved from China, to America to visit her father. She babysat Mrs.O’Rieleys kids Sean, Steven, and Seamen. In addition, she took care of her piano teacher’s parrot. Also she plays baseball at school. She also had a friend, Emily. She’s very nice. Furthermore, Shirley got punched in the eye by a bully, Mabel.
Jackie and Shirley have lots in common. They both like to play baseball. At first, everyone thought neither of them could play baseball, they are actually really good at it. They are the best players I know.
