It is a time of uncertainty for Dodgers fans. Walter O'Malley has gone on the record saying that the Dodgers will play, at most, two more seasons (1956 & 1957) at Ebbets Field. This taken as completely serious until O'Malley announced that the Dodgers will play eight games (seven regular season and one exhibition) at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City. Whether the Dodgers are exploring moving to Jersey City until a new stadium is built in Brooklyn is unknown. This deadline and the Dodgers disappointing 1955 season are weighing heavily on the minds of Dodgers.
In Cleveland the mood of the local sports fans is a little sour after both the Indians and Browns were defeated in bids for their championships in 1955.
