  • Anything planned for the 100th anniversary of Ebbets Field?

    Just curious if there is anything planned for next year?

    I doubt it.

    When the 90th anniversary arrived on a soaking weekday, I believe fewer than 10 people gathered on Bedford Avenue.

    The Giants have a NY Giants Historical Society. Why is there no similar group for the Brooks?
    Still patiently waiting @ at Sullivan & McKeever (once THE corner in MLB) for the Brooks to return from their extended road trip.

      I certainly haven't seen or heard anything to that effect, and I'm in Brooklyn.
      I may just drop a line to Borough President Marty Markowitz, though -- he's one of the people who keeps the flame lit for the Dodgers.

      As for a Brooklyn Dodgers Historical Society, it is intriguing that none seems to exist. The Boston Braves have one, and that was two moves ago.
      The Brooklyn Historical Society has devoted exhibits to the Dodgers, and there is the Brooklyn Baseball Gallery at KeySpan Park (home of the Cyclones).

      I'm wondering what may have become of the brooklyndodgermemories.com website, run by tonypug and penncentralpete, who still post here too.
      I just got a page that looks like the site is now vacant. I hope that maybe it's just undergoing maintenance or something.

      This topic also reminded me of the effort to move the Ebbets Field flagpole to Borough Hall in 2005.
      From what I gathered at the time, the owners were holding out for money ($50K).
      As this amusing blog post tells us, it's apparently no longer on Utica Avenue in East Flatbush...and the authors are wondering where it went.

              Earlier this summer I wrote to the Brooklyn Borough President to ask if anything is planned for the 100th anniversary of Ebbets Field.

              Still awaiting a reply.

                Maybe the Nets should do something now that they are Brooklyn's major league franchise. Especially since their campaign for the arena was based on restoring major league sports to Brooklyn

                    Any significant memorial is in a no-man's land.

                    A big time investment group took over the LA franchise to score a big T.V. deal and couldn't care less.

                    Even under different ownership Ebbets Field represents an original sin that franchise would rather forget.

                    Nets ownership is basically a guy in Russia who couldn't care less.

                    The Mets are logical custodians of NY NL history, but Fred Coupon was so busy trying to wring as much money out of "Citi" Field as possible, he forgot to add any Mets stuff when it opened. The resulting criticism has forced him to keep a distance from any further homages to Brooklyn. End of the day these began and ended with the rotunda anyway.

                    As a result this is it:

                    A Brooklyn Cyclones promotion and a couple small articles. Maybe another couple on Tuesday. That's it.

                      The Nets actually did do something positive in putting the Ebbets Field flagpole in front of the Barclays Center.
