Overview

For fans who want to enjoy the "Boys of Summer" in any season, this look at the major league baseball team founded in the 1880s and still going strong today is sure to satisfy that craving. Noted for their propensity for losing the pennant at the last possible moment, the Brooklyn Dodgers became one of the most beloved teams in Major League Baseball thanks to the prowess of such players as Duke Snider, Pee Wee Reese, Don Newcomb, and Carl Furillo. Of course the team would make sports history when Branch Rickey broke the color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson in 1947, and during their tenure in Brooklyn the team would appear in a staggering nine World Series matches - eventually beating their bitter rivals the New York Yankees in 1955.
