When Jackie Robinson asked teammate Carl Erskine why he wasn't bothered by race, Erskine replied with two words: Johnny Wilson. This week on Only A Game, we tell the story of a childhood friendship that changed the All-Star pitcher's life. And, after the decline of her boxing career, former world champ Christy Martin was shot by her husband and left for dead. Plus, the most controversial moment from the 2016 MLB All-Star Game happened before the first pitch.

This program aired on July 16, 2016.
