Hop a subway turnstile back into the golden age of baseball, when the Brooklyn Dodgers won the hearts of the city--and a nation. From your seat in the bleachers of Ebbets Field, watch as legends like Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Duke Snider and Roy Campanella take the field once more. Cheer on the definitive "America team" through decades of triumph, heartbreak and fans' cries of "Wait until next year!" Relive their undying rivalry against the New York Yankees and the Giants and be in the stands as Jackie Robinson makes history by breaking the game's color barrier.
Here's a comprehensive look at the beloved team--and your ticket to a summer-tinged era when "Dem Bums" reigned as kings of baseball!
