道奇棒球队:抛弃自己城市的“流民”

The Dodgers weren’t the first baseball team to abandon a city but perhaps no fans felt — and still feel — more collective trauma than those from Brooklyn.

道奇队(The Dodgers)不是第一个抛弃自己城市的棒球队,但也许没有别的球迷比布鲁克林人受到了更大的集体创伤,而且直至今天。

On May 28, 1957, the borough’s beloved “Bums” and the New York Giants won permission to move to California. They left the next year for Los Angeles and San Francisco, respectively.
Jerry Reinsdorf, a Brooklyn native who owns the Chicago White Sox, said that losing the Dodgers broke his heart.

1957年5月28日,这里的民众所钟爱的“那些流民”(Bums,即纽约道奇队)和纽约巨人队(New York Giants)获得了搬去加州的许可。第二年它们分别搬到了洛杉矶和旧金山。

“I’m still ticked,” Mr. Reinsdorf said recently. “There’s no way that an iconic franchise should have been allowed to move.”

“我今天还在为这事生气,”瑞斯多夫最近说。“一支标志性的球队绝对不应该被允许搬走。”

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont also invoked a similar pain recently, saying fans had no concept that the team did not belong to Brooklyn.

佛蒙特州参议员伯尼·桑德斯(Bernie Sanders)最近也提到了类似的痛苦,他说球迷们没想到球队会离开布鲁克林。

“It was a disaster. Walter O’Malley, his name remains in infamy,” he said of the owner of the Dodgers at the time.

“真是一场灾难。沃尔特·欧马利(Walter O’Malley),他的名字依旧在耻辱柱上,”他提到道奇队当时的老板时说。

Some have tried to shift blame from O’Malley because of his battle with New York over a new stadium. But in 1986, the White Sox threatened to leave Chicago for the same reason.

一些人试图将为欧马利开脱,因为他与纽约就一座新球场发生了争执。在1986年,白袜队因为同样的原因也威胁要离开芝加哥。

“Frankly,” Mr. Reinsdorf said then, acknowledging the parallel, “I don’t know if I have the heart to do it.”

“坦率地说,”瑞斯多夫当时说道,他承认了两者的相似性,“我不知道自己是否有勇气那么做。”

He didn’t have to find out. Chicago complied.

事情并没有走到那一步。芝加哥妥协了。
