EPISODE DESCRIPTION

“I don’t care if I ever get to the majors, I told myself this is the city for me, this is paradise…”

                                                                                                     Jackie Robinson 1946

Jackie Robinson called Montreal his “Paradise”. In 1946, the season before Robinson broke the colour barrier, he played for the Montreal Royals of the International League. This special episode of The Canadian Baseball Network Podcast takes an in-depth look at Jackie Robinson’s year playing in Canada, his love for the city of Montreal, his experiences and challenges throughout the 1946 season and his legacy in Canada, including how he is celebrated at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Marys, Ontario.
