c. Kansas City Monarchs
Robinson was born on Jan. 31, 1919.
In between the Monarchs of the Negro League and the Dodgers of the Major League, Robinson played for one other team.
Once the Dodgers brought him into their system, they sent him down to the minors to get a little more experience. He spent 1946 with the Montreal Royals. The Dodgers called him up for good the next year, and in doing so, shattered baseball's color barrier.
