In 1955 and 1956, the Brooklyn Dodgers used the drill hall of the armory as a practice location because their practice grounds were too wet that season. Tom Miskel says that the hall was large enough to accommodate the trajectory of the baseballs. You can find other remnants of the Brooklyn Dodgers in Crown Heights, and other locations in Brooklyn.
