More Of My Calendar Notes (Part 2)

October 1, 2016

The Brooklyn Dodgers’ lone World Series triumph achieved in (same calendar) 1955 not only was glorious but also a reminder of how early, relative to today with 4 tiers of post-season play,the season ended.

Though the Dodgers, in Los Angeles starting with the 1958 season, are in the post-season, there will be no corresponding exact day post-season game with 1955.

When John Podres pitched a complete game shutout and Gil Hodges drove in both Brooklyn Dodgers’ runs to finally lift Brooklyn into the “Promised land” the last game the 7th game of the World Series in which Sandy Amoros helped save the crown with a great catch on a ball hit by the great Yogi Berra, it was October 4th, as is the case this year, a Tuesday.

The Dodgers’ first game, a quarterfinal game, almost certain to be in Washington vs the Nationals, will not take place until Friday October 7th.

There will be some corresponding Dodgers’ post-season games with their 1988 title run. A look at some possible such games in my next post.
