Ebbets Field was an open sewer.

Cool. Blueprints that are actually blue. True fact, the team was named Dodgers because people attending the game had to dodge the streetcars on the line right outside Ebbets Field.

O'Malley's plans for a new stadium in Brooklyn reportedly included a roof. It would have been glorious, but Robert Moses would not give O'Malley the land and wanted him to build in Queens. O'Malley saw he was being pushed around, and he knew that moving the Dodgers to Queens would be just as bad as moving them to the moon, so he moved to the west coast (not without conferring with Horace Stoneham, owner of the Giants, because O'Malley knew that keeping the rivalry alive would be good for both teams and good for baseball.)

But the team nickname '(Trolley) Dodgers' predates Ebbets Field by twenty-two years...

It referred to dodging trolleys in general througout Brooklyn, not just by Ebbets.
