The only major league team whose location was a borough rather than a city or state, the Brooklyn Dodgers ended their run in 1957 when Walter O'Malley moved the team to Los Angeles. This was only ten years after their proudest moment -- Jackie Robinson's breaking of the color barrier -- and two years after their greatest triumph, beating the hated Yankees in the World Series after five losses. They've won the loyalty of fans throughout the country but especially in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, where people bleed Dodger Blue. "Dodgers Journal" is the definitive history of the team, covering every season day by day and year by year from 1884 to 2008. The book, equally good for extended reading, casual dipping, fact-checking, and trivia games, is packed with photos and statistics and includes an all-time roster, yearly lineups, all-decade all-star teams, interesting and unusual facts, and unique "season in a sentence" recaps.
