Jackie Robinson Ballpark and Statue
Welcome to the Jackie Robinson Ballpark, the historically significant and athletically popular baseball field located in Daytona Beach. Also known as the Radiology Association Field, or more simply just ‘The Jack’, this spot plays host to one of the most groundbreaking sports history moments, the first integrated major league baseball game (1946)! Today you can learn all about this historic game, the athletic career of Jackie Robinson in general, and ballpark stats and current key players.
While visiting the park your group may schedule an official group tour by appointment, times available each Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm, or you may just stroll around the field and outdoor museum areas yourselves. Along the Riverwalk you will find various concessions utilized during game times as well as plaques, markers, and activities explaining more about Jackie Robinson. There are displays at the Orange Avenue Entrance, near the ‘Picnic Porch’, and right along the Halifax River, each display doing its part to better explain Robinson’s ‘athletic abilities and sociological impacts’. Learn about other famous Barrier Breakers in the sports world, get details on Robinson's meeting with Dodgers General Manager, and try to steal home plate along Robinson’s historic base path.
Try to make time during your trip to see a game in action, the Daytona Tortugas minor league team always putting on a great show!
