          Can you provide a link to the Times' pages? I would love to be able to read the full text of the articles.

          Great images. Thanks!

              At Ebbets Field before each game, the fans would line up along the railing, and the players would walk along and shake hands with everybody and sign autographs and chat about that afternoon's game. For many of the fans, the Dodgers became part of their family...

              And every once in a while, the Dodgers made a fan part of theirs. (Peter Golenbock)

                    The press box wasn't built until 1929. It was the perch from which 2 Hall of Fame broadcasters painted mental pictures for their listeners and described the players "tearin' up the pea patch." If you couldn't make it out to the game they'd bring it into your home. Red Barber used an hourglass 3 minute egg timer to remind himself to give the score often enough for the sake of listeners who had just tuned in.

                      I need an emoticon of someone impatiently glancing down at their wrist watch and tapping their foot.
                      Seriously...I'm looking forward to the articles and I appreciate the effort it takes to format them so that everybody can enjoy them. It's going to be one heckuva good read and well worth the wait.

                              Great shot, zman!

                              That is a very young VIN SCULLY (atop the "G") sitting next to CONNIE DESMOND (atop the "M").

                                In the book Creating the National Pastime, the author, G. Edward White, talks about how Ebbets purposely transformed the baseball audience by creating a safer and more family friendly environment than had existed in the club's previous home, Washington Park.

                                Here's a link to the 1rst chapter of White's book. The first part is about the Polo Grounds. The part about Ebbets Field is about half way down the page and a very informative read.
