Marty Markowitz’s Dodgers Memories:  Sneaking in to Ebbets Field, hating the Yankees, and watching the “loony” fans

Before the Brooklyn Nets had ever played a single regular-season game, I sat down with Brooklyn borough President Marty Markowitz to ask him a few questions about Brooklyn. One thing that came up when talking to Markowitz, a lifelong resident of Brooklyn, were his memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers before they left the borough in 1957. With the release of the movie “42” last week, we felt it appropriate to bring Marty back to share those memories again. Enjoy.
