On April 16, 1945, the Boston Red Sox give tryouts to three African-American players: Sam Jethroe, Jackie Robinson, and Marvin Williams. The three players work out at Fenway Park, but none are signed to contracts. Later in the season, Robinson will sign a minor league contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers and, ironically, the Red Sox will be the last major league team to integrate.
