The Dodgers weren't The first baseball team to abandon their city, but perhaps no other fan has been more collectively traumatized than The people of brooklyn, and to this day.
On May 28, 1957, the beloved "Bums" (the New York dodgers) and the New York Giants were granted permission to move to California. The next year they moved to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
1957年5月28日，这里的民众所钟爱的“那些流民”（Bums，即纽约道奇队）和纽约巨人队(New York Giants)获得了搬去加州的许可。第二年它们分别搬到了洛杉矶和旧金山。
Jerry Reinsdorf, the owner of the Chicago White Sox and a brooklyn native, said losing the dodgers broke his heart. 纽约时报中英文网 http://www.qqenglish.com
芝加哥白袜队(Chicago White Sox)的老板杰里·瑞斯多夫(Jerry Reinsdorf)是布鲁克林人，他说失去道奇队伤透了他的心。
I'm still angry about it today, resdorf said recently. "An iconic team should never be allowed to move."
Senator Bernie Sanders of vermont recently cited similar pain when he said fans didn't expect the team to leave brooklyn.
It was a disaster. Walter O 'malley, whose name is still on the list, he said of the dodgers' then-owner.
Some are trying to exonerate o 'malley over a dispute with New York over a new stadium. In 1986, the white sox threatened to leave Chicago for the same reason.
Frankly, resdorf said at the time, acknowledging the similarities, "I don't know if I had the guts to do that."
It didn't go that far. Chicago gave in.
