Have you ever heard of the Brooklyn Bridegrooms?  Or the Brooklyn Robins?  Or even the Brooklyn Superbas?  Well they were all baseball teams that played in New York a long time ago.  And they are all the same team.  The team had many names before it officially became the Brooklyn Dodgers.  And they weren't a very good team.  While the New York Yankees and the New York Giants were world series contenders, the Dodgers made their mark by the mistakes they made -- three players at third base at the same time ; outfield fly balls bonking the outfielder on the head -- more than once!  They were eventually nicknamed the Brooklyn Bums.  They were a far cry from the team today.  Learn the history of this team and find out how they went from the bums of New York to a contender in Los Angeles.
SUBJECTS:     Los Angeles Dodgers (Baseball team)
                        Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles, Calif.)
