Dodgertown Dates:

  • Branch Rickey speaks of plans for spring training for the Brooklyn Dodgers in California and Florida. “Mr. Rickey reported generally on his ideas for spring training. He is considering Florida, California, and two locations outside of the country. He went into considerable detail on the number of exhibition games and possible attendance. The matter was left in Mr. Rickey’s hands.”Minutes, Brooklyn Dodger Board of Directors, September 16, 1946
