And there used to be a ballpark where the field was warm and green
And the people played their crazy game with a joy I'd never seen
And the air was such a wonder from the hot dogs and the beer
Yes, there used a ballpark right here

And there used to be rock candy and a great big Fourth of July
With the fireworks exploding all across the summer sky
And the people watched in wonder, how they'd laugh and how they'd cheer
And there used to be a ballpark right here

Now the children try to find it
And they can't believe their eyes
`cause the old team just isn't playing
And the new team hardly tries

And the sky has got so cloudy
When it used to be so clear
And the summer went so quickly this year

Yes, there used to be a ballpark right here

    Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY it only refers to Ebbetts Field where the almighty Brooklyn Dodgers played. this song brings tears to my eyes as I remember going to Ebbetts with dad back in the late 40's and early 50's.

    "...the new team hardly tries are the NY Mets who for 8 years after their creations would lose more games than any other team in history.
