The Allentown Brooks were a minor league baseball team that operated from 1935-1936. The nickname was derived from their parent team, the Brooklyn Dodgers. They played in the New York-Pennsylvania League and were based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The ballclub was previously known as the Reading Brooks before moving to Allentown midway through the 1935 season, largely as a measure to reduce operating costs.[1]
