Regarding Jackie Robinson Memorial. This Daytona Beach Ballpark is named in honor of famed major league baseball player Jackie Robinson. In 1946, Daytona Beach was the only city along the spring season circuit to allow Robinson to play. This event helped Robinson to eventually break the color barrier in major league baseball.
On October 22, 1998, this stadium was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places.
