One of our staffers' dads grew up right near Ebbets Field. To this day, he says "The fall of 1955 was the best time of my life." That was the year the Brooklyn Dodgers finally solved the New York Yankees to win a World Series. Buzzie Bavasi, who built that team, passed away last night in San Diego at 93. We use "Clip Reel" to honor him.
