Overview

Baseball fans may know the story of the Brooklyn Dodgers, but they don't know the whole story. With a foreword by Branch Barrett Rickey (grandson of Branch Rickey), this book fills the void in Dodgers scholarship, exploring their impact on popular culture and revealing lesser-known details of the team's history. Personal stories are included from the fans who embraced Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Carl Erskine, Roy Campanella and other icons of Ebbets Field. Drawing on archival documents, contemporary press accounts and fan interviews, the author brings to life the magic of the Dodgers, chronicling in detail the genesis, glory and demise of the team that changed baseball--and America.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

impossible to stop reading...and savoring...Krell’s writing is poetic”—Nine; “The team’s history, marks on the city and many references in popular culture during that time are told in this interesting book by David Krell. This book is one that anyone who has fond memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers...will have to add to his or her baseball library”—The Guy Who Reviews Sports Books.
