Walter O'Malley was the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers and after the 1957 season, he moved the team to Los Angeles. This broke the hearts of millions.
A few years later, a Brooklyn fan was asked this question:
If you had a gun with only two bullets, and Hitler, Mussolini and Walter O'Malley were standing in front of you, who would you shoot?
"I'd shoot O'Malley twice," was the response.
