Our Bums

With a foreword by Branch Barrett Rickey (grandson of Branch Rickey), Our Bums fills a tremendous void in Dodgers scholarship, exploring their impact on popular culture and revealing lesser-known details of the team’s history.
 “Great tales of the team when it toiled in Brooklyn…well-researched remembrance.”—New York Post 

Baseball fans may know the story of the Brooklyn Dodgers, but they don’t know the whole story. The true accounts of Charles Ebbets’s financial sacrifice to build Ebbets Field, Jackie Robinson’s immediate revolution in media coverage of baseball, and Walter O’Malley’s heartbreaking decision to move the team to Los Angeles are just a few of the tales in Our Bums that bring to life the magic of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Drawing on archival documents, contemporary press accounts, and fan interviewsOur Bums will add great value to a baseball fan’s book collection.
