There is no more forlorn statue in Montreal than the Jackie Robinson Statue by Jules Lasalle at the Olympic Stadium.
Moved there in 1996. It now hangs out with skateboarders in a place that has no baseball.
Smaller than life size, it was initially designed for a miniature baseball field where Delormier Downs was.
It was moved to “celebrate” the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson playing baseball in Montreal.
It woudl be very nice if they would return it to the corner of de Lormier and Ontario.
Jackie Robinson actually wore number 9 when he was playing for the Royals.
