Overview

Ebbets Field was Brooklyn's Baseball Shrine. From the first televised baseball game and the home of the first black player to integrate baseball, Ebbets Field served as a community meeting place where people came to worship their hometown Dodgers.

Inside are contributions from such notable baseball heavy hitters as Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell, NY Times Dave Anderson and ex NY Met GM Joe McDonald (who started out as a ticket taker at Gate 19). Also interviewed are multiple ex-Brooklyn Dodgers including Spider Jorgenson, Gene Hermanski, and Carl Erskine, who give their first hand observations and memories of Ebbets Field. Many old Brooklyn Dodger fans also added their unique stories, as well as photos, of the Ebbets Field experience.
