This one is so embarrassing--I just found out that the last major league baseball team to be integrated was my own Boston Red Sox. Apparently the owner at the time was a big old racist. He gave Jackie Robinson a tryout, but did not hire him.

In fact, the Boston Bruins hockey team was integrated nefore the Red Sox.
