Cooperstown: Brooklyn Dodgers Gift Mall !!! Dugout Memories Inc. welcomes you to our Brooklyn Dodgers gift line and historical presentation website.
We began our experience with an Internet presentation of the "Boys of Summer" movie project in the
early stages of 1993. My naivety of this topic was soon to be a learning experience with so many wonderful E-mail
contacts of those long but not forgotten days at Ebbets Field. What started out with someone wanting a 1955 baseball cap
during our discussions, other teams and their histories soon followed. There was no MLB.com> and Google or Yahoo were upstarts.
The 'Boys of Summer' project did not materialize but I was soon involved behind the developement stages of Mark Reese
( Pee Wee Reese's son) production of "Brooklyn Dodgers:The Original America's Team" in 1997 for an ESPN presentation of
the 5 part mini-series. Many contacts with children of former players were made into long time friends ... so after 20 years,
final culmination into a story of Jackie Robinson '42' will finally hit the screen. Hopefully, the story of those Bums and that special
borough neighborhood of 2.5 million in Brooklyn and in that quaint stadium of Ebbets Field can be passed to the next generation of
baseball fans. It has truly been a blessing to our family in Louisiana to learn of such a close family of players, friends and community
surrounding the Brooklyn Dodgers.....So to Mike Shuba, Gil Hodges Jr. Mark Reese and many otherchildren/ grandchildren,
thank you for the memories and friendships from our family to yours in keeping these stories alive . Glenn Gough/DM.

Beloved Ebbets Field and named after Dodger owner Charlie Ebbets. It opened on April 9, 1913, and served the burgeoning borough of Brooklyn, NY, until the Dodgers broke their fans' hearts and moved out following the 1957 season.
