This day in Dodgers History…. April 21st


Dodger Fans, Baseball History happens every day.  Whether it played a major impact on a championship run or was the story of the day, history has happened.  Here are two events that took place today in Dodgers History.

April 21st 1948: The Legendary Dodgers Manager Leo Durocher returns to the helm after a one year suspension.  It would be a short return though as after starting the year 35-37, Durocher would be fired.  The Dodgers would rebound and finish the season 84-70.  (A third place finish)

April 21st 1967: For the first time in the history of LA Dodgers, there was a rainout at their home ballpark.  This would end a streak of 737 games played without a canceled game due to rain.  The rare rainout was one of the many unfortunate results of the 1967 season.  The Dodgers would finish 73-89 and in 8th place that season.

By the way: CONGRATS TO Matt Kemp ON ANOTHER WALK OFF…. GO DODGERS!!!
