The Brooklyn Dodgers was an American football team that played in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) from 1946 to 1948. The team is unrelated to the Brooklyn Dodgers that played in the National Football League from 1930 to 1943. The team folded prior to the 1949 season and was merged with the New York Yankees to form the Brooklyn-New York Yankees.

Team history

The Brooklyn Dodgers of the new AAFC held their first training camp in the summer of 1946 out west in central Oregon in the small town of Bend.[3] Led by head coach Mal Stevens, some 62 members of the team assembled in Bend in the middle of July of that year.[4][5][6] The team played two preseason games in the Pacific Northwest, the first in Portland against the Chicago Rockets at Multnomah Stadium on August 18,[7][8][9][10] and the following Saturday night in Spokane against the New York Yankees at Gonzaga Stadium.[5][11][12]

The star of the Dodgers was passing halfback Glenn Dobbs, an All-American at the University of Tulsa.[5]
