i dont know whose fault it was ,but perhaps it was both.
my opinion....its clear moses wanted the dodgers in queens,
how could the brooklyn dodgers play in queens.
when all was said and done since they couldn't stay in brooklyn, they then looked for the best deal elsewhere. a location they would choose and not moses.
this was the yankees town and the dodgers were and would continue to be second to the yankees. by them escaping new york and going west they were suddenly second to no one. it was their town.
i grew up in pigtown, a mere 8 blocks south east of ebbets.
my earliest memory of mlb was the 1960 yankees/pirates world series.
talkin yankee baseball...those were some good years for yankee fans. after that disappointing yankee series loss the next season 60-61 was the m & m boys ,mantle and maris. the yanks defeated the reds that season in the series.they then defeated the giants in 62. and that was the end of their run.
they were swept by the dodgers in 63 ,and then lost the 64 series against the cards,with the boyer brothers. then came an extended yankee drought that lasted until 1977 when the billy martin and yankees defeated tommy lasorda and the dodgers in the series.
