Jackie Robinson’s Brother Was An Olympic Medalist

Mack Robinson, older brother of Baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, was quite an athlete himself. He won a silver medal in the 200 meters during the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, Germany.

In July, the City of Pasadena, CA honored both brothers with a ceremony at the Pasadena Robinson Memorial, where giant busts of the brothers were dedicated in 1997. Mack died in 2000.
