The only major league team whose named location was a borough, rather than a city or state, the Brooklyn Dodgers entered American mythology as a metaphor for lost innocence, the community and a symbol of the decline of the eastern city. Many in Brooklyn named the three most evil men of the 20th century as 'Hitler, Stalin and Walter O'Malley'. This is the story of 'dem Brooklyn bums', the original America's team and their legacy to the game, Jackie Robinson.
