Ebbets Field was home to the National League's Brooklyn Dodgers for over 40 years and during that time baseball saw many historic changes that originated there. From the first televised major league game to Jackie Robinson crashing the color barrier, Ebbets Field hosted a mind boggling variety of events in its 47 years of existence.
The park was a community meeting place in Brooklyn. Church services, political rallies and even movie showings were held there. Boxing, Olympic trials, professional, college and high school football, soccer and the circus were a few of the many other events that took place there. However, it was foremost a baseball stadium where loving fans came to adore their hometown heroes.
