A Little Brooklyn, A Little Baseball
We have not done this ride for a few years and we keep getting requests. We are listing it when the season winds down, so we can return for our own 5BBC fall classic, as we await the playoffs and the World Series. Don't just sit in the bleachers! Take a ride with a number of short stops, as we explore a small slice of Brooklyn's baseball history. where prospects grew and players lived. For the non-baseball fan, we will have interesting Brooklyn streets and sights and stories to make you smile and maybe tug an emotion or two. Bring hydration, lock, money for food, an inquisitive attitude and a good sense of humor. Baseball jersey optional.
Cover photo is a picture of Jackie Robinson and family across from the home he rented in East Flatbush during his early years with the Dodgers. We will be stopping by this home and telling some stories near the end of the ride.
