Ball Caps of the 20th Century - Old Leagues - MONTREAL ROYALS 1946

This is the road cap that Jackie Robinson wore the year he broke the color barrier in the minor leagues. There doesn’t seem to be anything he can’t do,” the papers said and that was the opinion of an old die-hard Brooklyn Dodger fan who once told me that Robinson was the one player you wanted when something needed to happen. Somehow he found the way. In 1946 for Montreal he found a way to win the league batting title, score the most runs, hit .400 in the Governor’s Cup for the International League title and after the Little World Series victory was mobbed by fans “It was probably the only day in history that a black man ran from a white mob with love instead of lynching on its mind.” Gray Crown, Navy Wool 3” Firm Visor, Navy Felt Logo, Leather Sweat Band, Adjustables are blackleather with bronze buckle.
