Event Details

1947 World Series Image

Charles Ebbets dreamed of a more permanent home for the Brooklyn Dodgers, a new state-of-the-art ballpark. His dream came true on April 9, 1913. Ebbets Field hosted decades of historic games and events, becoming a beloved landmark that still lives on in Brooklyn’s history and culture. Ebbets Field finally opened with great fanfare, greeting fans with a marble rotunda lit by a grand bat-and-ball chandelier, and a distinctive façade that today is replicated at Citi Field. 

Join the Brooklyn Historical Society for this celebration commemorating the opening of Ebbets Field!  We will host an intimate panel discussion with local historians --- and most importantly Dodgers fans --- as we remember what Ebbets Field came to symbolize for the borough of Brooklyn. The panel discussion will be followed by Q&A, refreshments, and a chance for Dodgers fans to record their own personal memories.

Panel will include: Mike Shapiro, author of The Last Good Season: Brooklyn, the Dodgers, and Their Final Pennant Race Together and Brooklyn Borough Historian Ron Schweiger .

Event is FREE with Museum Admission.
