Branch Rickey on Whats My Line Branch Rickey, one of baseball's greatest minds, was a mystery challenger on What's My Line on September 13, 1959. Rickey had twice revolutionized the game: He introduced the farm system in the 1920s. He also signed Jackie Robinson to a contract, effectively racially integrating the major leagues. Rickey's proposed Continental Baseball League never got off the ground, but it did prompt the exisitng major leagues to grant expansion franchises.
