Robinson Memorial

Jackie Robinson (1/31/19 to 1/24/72) was the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era.

Mack Robinson (7/18/14 to 3/12/00) was noted for his silver medal in the 200 m. dash, 0.4 seconds after Jesse Owens at the Berlin Olympics in 1936.

curiously, there are images engraved on the back of each.

Jackie's has what looks like a crossword puzzle.

Mack's has an image of an olympic arena.
