Jackie Robinson helped officially break the colour barrier in Major League Baseball post-World War II.  Between playing for the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League and the Brooklyn Dodgers, Robinson spent the 1946 season with the Montreal Royals of the International League. He and his wife expressed fond memories of their time spent in Montreal.
