a neighborhood north of downtown LA which was destroyed in order to make room for Dodger Stadium. No respect was given to those families who had lived in Chavez Ravine for generations who were evicted to make way for the incoming Brooklyn Dodgers. The park is still located in 'Chavez Ravine' but the community is no longer there. The sections in the Ballpark surrounding left field are now called Mannywood, in homage to the performance enhanced hispanic superstar brought over from Boston. Some beleive the spirits of the displaced still wreak havoc on Dodger karma.
Let's head up to Chavez Ravine, its a nice night for ball, ehh?
