I think this photo is really compelling because it depicts Jackie Robinson as the main focus of the photo.  In a lot of photos of Robinson, we see him smiling with other white players, but here, he is the pure scene of talent and admiration in this play.  The catcher is even so dejected his face is now in the first.  I also think that the black and white photo keeps you focused on the race of the players involved, where as more color could potentially distract the viewer.
