The integration of spring training
But Dodgertown itself could not solve the larger problem of racial separation in the Grapefruit League. More than a decade after Robinson joined the Dodgers, black players for other teams were still shunned by many Florida hotels and restaurants.

It wasn’t until just before the Civil Rights Act in 1964 that all teams had fully-integrated spring training accommodations in Florida.
An interesting and informative read.
