Major League Baseball Team Owner. Rose from a mere ticket seller to owner and President of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Purchased the team in 1898, and held ownership until his death in 1925 (his buying of the Dodgers ended a proposed move of the team to Baltimore). He was responsible for the hiring of Wilbert Robinson as team manager, and his club would go the the World Series twice in his tenure (1916 and 1920). He financed and built the now-legendary Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, which was the home to the Dodgers from 1913 until their move to Los Angeles in 1957 (the studium was demolished in 1960; the Jackie Robinson Apartments stands in its place today).
