Summary "In 1898, after a 15-yesr apprenticeship, Ebbets became president of the Dodgers, a team in poor financial condition.. Over the next 25 years, he organized four pennant-winng clubes, and developed one of the most profitable franchises in the game--while building two state-of the-art ballparks. [He also] worked tirelessly on innovations that would help all teams...personal weakness undermined much of what he built.-- Back cover..
