Branch Rickey started the "noble experiment." Which put Jackie Robinson in the Dodgers. Rickey looks for the noble African American player for the white team he covered himself up by saying he was a "negro" league. Wendell Smith (dodgers scout) asked Jackie Robinson to tryout for the Brown Dodgers ( all African American league). Robinson was offered a job at the dodgers. Branch Rickey - "Robinson" HE SAID . "I'm looking for a ball player with guts enough not to fight back."

The conflict of Thank You Mr. Falker is Trisha didn't know how to read, she tried but she just couldn't. She felt dumb compared to her other classmates. Trisha felt so dumb that she agreed to move to the other side of the country with her brother and mom. She moved for her new classmates wouldn't know that she didn't know how to read. The theme, don't give up on something that you want to do but aren't good at.
