Trolley dodger was a pejorative term of Manhattanitesmarker for residents of Brooklyn, New Yorkmarker from the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century. The term, relating to Brooklyn's preponderance of trolley lines, is the basis of the name of Major League Baseball team the Los Angeles Dodgers (which was originally based in Brooklyn, named such in 1891 when their field in Eastern Parkmarker was bordered on two sides by trolley tracks) and the now-defunct National Football League team the Brooklyn Dodgers.
