Finished by Charles Ebbets in 1913 with help from the McKeever family, Ebbets Field quickly became one of the most wonderful temples of sport drama. Home to the National League’s Brooklyn Dodgers from 1913 to 1957, fans watched two National Championships come home (one in 1916 and another in 1920) from the stands here. Most notably, however, was the arrival of Jackie Robinson to the roster in 1947. The first black player in the modern major leagues, fans would come far and wide to the town of Flatbush to see his lightning speed and grueling fight into the history books.
After decades of calling it home, the Dodgers left Ebbets Field on September 24, 1957 after a sweet final victory over Pittsburgh. 3 years later, the stadium was demolished, and the victories fought there for the Dodgers were left to memory.
