This statue was dedicated September 15, 1990 by Rachel Robinson

Formally known as City Island Ball Park, this is the site of the first racially integrated Spring training game which was played on March 17, 1946 between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Montreal Royals. Hall of Fame legend Jackie Robinson played for Montreal, the Brooklyn farm team, this marking an historic event in the struggle to achieve equability of opportunity in modern Major League Baseball. The Daytona Beach community is proud to have hosted that legendary game and Spring training, both of which are viewed as milestones in the history of sport and civil rights.
