Dodger Trivia

The Brooklyn Dodgers (who later became the Los Angeles Dodgers) did not get their name because of their sporting ability. The term dodger was a shortened form of the term trolley dodgers, which was first used to describe Brooklynites for their ability to avoid being hit by trolley cars.

Brooklyn is a wonderful city but it is in New York city and it is crowded. I lived in Brooklyn for 22 years.
