Jackie and Me
by Steven Dietz
Adapted from the book by Dan Gutman
Directed by Marion McClinton

Joe Stoshack is a baseball fanatic with a secret: he uses baseball cards to travel back in time! He travels back to 1947 to meet Jackie Robinson, and though Joe’s flashy Nikes and Gameboy threaten to reveal he’s from the future, his friendship with Jackie teaches him much more than just how to steal home plate. Based on Dan Gutman's beloved book, Jackie and Me is a time-traveling adventure story that shines a spotlight on the specific moment in sports that changed America forever: when Jackie Robinson first stepped up to the plate, in more ways than one, as a Brooklyn Dodger.
