Read An Excerpt From “Blue Magic”
Today, the Brooklyn Dodgers do not exist but for the soul of those who refuse to yield their passion for the team’s legacy. Their passion is relentless. Their heartbreak, legendary.

Fans found a communal setting at Ebbets Field, a brick-faced ballpark that occupied one city block in the Flatbush neighborhood.
