Just Because: Photo of first game in Ebbets Field

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Ebbets Field was home to the Brooklyn Dodgers in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York from 1913-1957. It remains one of baseball's most famous stadiums in history, despite having been demolished in February of 1960.

And here, courtesy of the Library of Congress, is a photo taken during the first game ever played in Ebbets Field.

The game was of the exhibition variety, pitting the Yankees against the Brooklyn Superbas on April 5, 1913. That's Ray Caldwell of the Yankees on the hill.

The Brooklyn club would go by the Robins the following season up until 1932, when it finally became the Dodgers for good.
