#N12BX: Relocation of sports teams

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Today marks 34 years since the Colts sneaked out of Baltimore and headed to Indianapolis .

The team moved out in the middle of the night while the city of Baltimore was asleep, leaving many Baltimore fans still upset to this day.

New York City is no stranger to being deceived by a sports team. In the late 1950s, the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. The New York Giants baseball team moved to San Francisco.

The New York area currently has nine professional sports teams: two baseball teams, two football teams, two basketball teams and three hockey teams.
