The Brooklyn Dodgers were an American professional baseball team, based out of Brooklyn, which later became a borough of New York City. While several professional teams had been located in Brooklyn, and the name "Dodgers" (shortened from "Trolley Dodgers") applied to several of them, finally being used by the National League franchise in the 1890s, the Brooklyn team officially adopted the name in 1933. In 1947, the Dodgers broke baseball's color barrier by bringing Jackie Robinson into major league baseball. After the 1957 season, the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to Los Angeles to become the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In 1938, while studying in New York, Marie Arnoux became a fan of the Dodgers, and was a spectator at Waite Hoyt's last game that year. She briefly brought up the memory when she met Indiana Jones and George McHale in 1943.

In 1941, when Indiana Jones doubted that Reginald Brooksbank had actually found the Akashic Hall of Records, Jones claimed that if Brooksbank could tell him who would win the 1941 World Series, he would believe him. A film recorded by Brooksbank revealed that the New York Yankees would eventually beat out the Brooklyn Dodgers, information that a believing Jones would pass on as a good betting tip to Bert Brodowski. Jones himself planned not to bet on the Yankees, because he was a Dodgers fan.
