As The Indy‘s production team was putting together this week’s cover story on the winning formula of Santa Barbara’s own minor leaguers the Foresters, John Zant broke in, delighted with the news of UCSB baseball’s unexpected berth in the College World Series. Back in 2013, our sports editor’s enthusiasm for the game took him to look for Ebbets Field, home of the Dodgers before the team moved to Los Angeles. He found it at the corner of McKeever and Sullivan in Brooklyn: “I’m standing over home plate,” he said of this photo, “a grease stain in the parking lot.” All the baseball starts here.
