Hector Racine

Born October 8, 1886 in La Prairie, Que., Racine was a partner in many different companies when he purchased a share of the Montreal Royals in 1933 and became president. It was a position he would hold until his death in 1956. Racine brokered the team’s partnership with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938 and oversaw Jackie Robinson’s arrival in 1946, as the Royals became one of the minor leagues’ most successful franchises, winning six Governors Cups and three Junior World Series under his leadership. At the time of his death, Racine was also a vice-president of the International League, and on the board of directors of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He died on March 12, 1956 in Bal Harbour, Fla.
