—Jackie Robinson Ballpark & Museum —Jack Roosevelt Robinson was the first African-American to break the modern day Major League Baseball color barrier. His extraordinary baseball skills, appealing personality, intelligence and courage, contributed to make this significant accomplishment possible. In breaking the baseball color barrier, he challenged the deeply rooted custom racial segregation in both north and south. Jackie's leadership opened the doors for other minorities into professional sports and the corporate world. In 1997, celebrating the 50th anniversary of this momentous event, Jackie Robinson was honored as a man who stood defiantly against those working against racial equality and acknowledged the profound influence of one man's life on American culture.
