Radiology Associates Field at Jackie Robinson Ballpark

Radiology Associates Field at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona Beach, FL, is the home of the Daytona Tortugas, the Cincinnati Reds' Florida State League farm team. Baseball at "The Jack" dates to 1914, but today's grandstand and press box only to 1962.
Arguably the minors' oldest active park - when did it become "this" park? - it is historic whether that is true or not. A year before breaking big-league baseball's color line, Jackie Robinson, then with the Montreal Royals, faced the Brooklyn Dodgers here in a March 17, 1946, spring training game that was the first openly integrated non-barnstorming game since 1889. Although renamed for Robinson in 1989, its 1998 National Register of Historic Places entry reads "City Island Ball Park" - the name it went by during the historic events of 1946.
Radiology Associates purchased field naming rights before the 2014 season.
