Brooklyn's Dodgers: The Bums, the Borough, and the Best of Baseball, 1947-1957


In this superb volume, Prince captures the intensity and depth of the Brooklyn Dodgers' relationship to the community and its people in the 1950s, showing how the team's influence extended well beyond the sports arena. He also covers the underside of the Dodger experience: the paternity suits, routine baseball-related sexism, and the ethnic conflicts that went with the Brooklyn territory. 13 illustrations.
