    Take Me Out to the Ballgame Song
    from Major League Properties, Inc.

    Take me out to the ball game,
    take me out with the crowd;
    buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
    I do not care if I ever get back,
    cause it is root, root, root for the home team,
    if they do not win its a shame.
    For its one, two, three strikes you are out,
    at the old ball game.

    Do you know how the Dodgers originally got their name?

    The baseball club was founded in 1890 and first played near the Brooklyn Bridge at a spot where several trolley lines merged. Crossing the busy tracks gave the team its first nickname, The Trolley Dodgers. The name was shortened to include the city Brooklyn and the Dodgers. The team moved to Los Angeles in 1958. offers more than 645 word lists.
