League: International League
History: On April 18, 1946, Jackie Robinson stepped onto the field for the Montreal Royals at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ, against the Jersey City Giants and became the first player in modern history to break Organized Baseball's unwritten "color line." Robinson (#9) went on to lead the International League in batting average and fielding percentage, and was promoted to Brooklyn the following season.
We recommend washing in a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry in order to preserve the felt work.
