For a brief shining moment between 1914 and 1915, Brooklyn had two major league baseball teams—the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers and the not-so-legendary Brooklyn Tip-Tops.
Within the New York area, one franchise was awarded to Brooklyn, owned by a baker named Robert Ward… The baker, with his brother George S. Ward, sunk more than $250,000 into the new concrete-and-steel ballpark, situated so near the Gowanus that fans got a good whiff of its toxic odors on summer days.
An owner paying for his ballpark? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
