On the final day of the 1962 season, Oliver’s homer lifted the spoiler Cards (1-0) at L.A. yielding the second unscheduled playoff between baseball’s greatest rivals (do not look now or maybe do look, but there is an excellent chance of a “scheduled” playoff series between the teams and in fairness, either a one game or even a series behind another pair of great rivals, the Yankees and Red Sox) the Giants and Dodgers, won in dramatic fashion exactly 11 years after Bobby Thomson’s game ending clout, also on a Wednesday October 3rd.
