The Dodgers Are Moving Back to Brooklyn

From Ebbett’s Field, they had to move away. This team sought greener pastures in LA. What they needed was a little change of scene. The team moved into a park at Chavez Ravine. Back in Brooklyn, the boys had a good home. Their fans didn’t want the team to roam. A reason to move was the advent of jet travel. Coast to coast flights were made practical. The appeal in Southern California didn’t seem to stick. The boys in blue were getting a little homesick. To their old Brooklyn fans, they felt regrets. New Yorkers became less than satisfied with the Mets. Here’s a little news that may astound: The Los Angeles Dodgers are now Brooklyn-bound! Modern sonnet December 22, 2012
