There is a scene where Rachel gets a babysitter to watch over her son. Before leaving she says "Thank you, Alice" I don't remember the conversation being about either the son or Robinson. I think it is a 3/3. If the conversation is about a man then at least a 2/3 until the script is made available for analysis.

The thanking by Jackie Robinson's wife of the babysitter doesn't really constitution a conversation, now does it. This is an excellent movie, about the desegration of baseball in the starting in 1940's and the Brooklyn Dodgers, but this is a movie by males, for males and about males. Because it's major league baseball - male domimated. The only female character is Jackie Robinson's wife, and she's portrayed as one helluva helpful and supportive little woman, gag.
