About
Historic marker for Kelly Field, which once hosted baseball, softball, kickball, football and other outdoor activities and played a role in the integration of professional baseball. Jackie Robinson and fellow Negro League veteran Johnny Wright practiced at Kelly Field with the Montreal Royals during spring training in 1946. That same year, Robinson and his Montreal club faced the parent Dodgers in an exhibition game at City Island Park in Daytona Beach (now Jackie Robinson Ballpark).
