Exactly 100 years ago Tuesday, the Brooklyn Dodgers played their first game at Ebbets Field against the Philadelphia Phillies. Brooklyn lost to Philadelphia, 1-0.

The Nets will honor the 100th anniversary of Ebbets Field by displaying the 1955 Dodgers championship banner on their court prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

According to a press release, the pennant is on loan to Barclays Center from the Brooklyn Historical Society.
