(KSDK Sports) -- Jackie Robinson has a connection to St. Louis, but it might not have ever been known had the granddaughter of Branch Rickey not opened a random box in her basement one day. 

In the box she found a photo album belonging to her grandfather Branch Rickey, the legendary baseball genius, who paved the way for Jackie Robinson to become the first African American ballplayer, back in 1947.
