“As a lifelong baseball fan, I am delighted to present this documentary film in depth about some of the lesser known legends who followed in the footsteps of Jackie Robinson to overcome racial barriers and make Big leagues be more inclusive,” Nelson said.
The documentary will feature personal letters from Jackie Robinson and interviews with iconic Major League players in recent years such as CC Sabathia and Mookie Betts.
It is not yet known when the documentary will be released.
