A Little Brooklyn - A Little Baseball

We have not done this ride for a few years and we keep getting requests. So, as the season begins and hope springs eternal, we are back for our own 5BBC classic. So, 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, stories to make you smile. Ride is listed at 32 miles, but I sometimes have to adjust depending on our progress, but don't worry the best stories will always be included. Bring hydration, money for food, an inquisitive attitude and a good sense of humor. Baseball jersey optional.

 

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 the home and telling some stories near the end of the ride.
